Why train in concentration?
Our mind is extremely powerful, endlessly creating our experiences, but until we develop concentration we have no means to harness our mind’s power and use it to deeply transform our life and our world.
By training in concentration, we will develop greater peace in our mind, we will have fewer distractions, we will experience greater contentment, and we will be able to focus freely on whatever we wish, creating extraordinary change in our lives.
This unique training in concentration leads us to a special quality of mind called “tranquil abiding,” a deeper level of concentration that arises through training in meditation in a systematic way over many sessions.
Tranquil abiding is a superior state of peace which brings us great power to make progress in our spiritual journey. In particular, through training in mindfulness we learn how to abide in meditation without distraction.
The day will consist of teachings, guided meditations, a vegetarian brunch and time to relax and enjoy the World Peace Café.
Everybody is welcome. This course is suitable for all levels of experience.
