Gelong Thubten - 7 Points of Mind Training: Learning to Let Go - Point 2
Gelong Thubten is delivering the next module of the 7 Points of Mind series. This particular module will provide meditation instruction, with a particular emphasis on how to learn to let go of attachment to our moods and distractions. We will train in how to discover that our minds are bigger than our problems.
Suggested donation: £30
Date: Sat 3rd March, 2pm-5pm
Gelong Thubten gives generously of his time to run these fundraising events and they are entirely supported by donations. No-one will be turned away for lack of funds but places are limited so please book early through our website to avoid disappointment.
You can attend this session singularly or you can choose to also attend the remaining sessions (dates to be confirmed).
The 7 Points of Mind Training
Whilst this event is part of an ongoing series it is also suitable for people who are new to mindfulness and meditation, and would like to attend an introductory session.
Each half day retreat will be a combination of teaching and practice with time for reflection, discussion and advice.
It is suitable for total beginners as well as the more experienced.
This teaching programme is designed to help you deepen your practice and increase your commitment to mindfulness, meditation and compassion training, bringing those qualities into all areas of daily life. The training helps us to look at our reactions and attitudes, and to transform life's challenges and difficulties.
