Meditative Adventures with the Subtle Mind

with Kadam Morten

In this series Kadam Morten will teach a special meditation known as absorption of cessation. This meditation quickly frees our mind from distraction and enables us to experience a more subtle, spacious and joyful mind. Combining this method with Buddha’s teaching on transforming the mind opens us to our potential for real change and enables us to liberate ourselves from painful habits quickly.

In these teachings we will explore the possibilities for truly transforming our lives and becoming the confident, joyful, creative and beneficial person we all long to be. This series is perfect both for those who are new to meditation and for those who wish to delve deeper.

Buddha’s Guide to a Joyful Life

One of the most cherished notions in all of Buddhism is the Bodhisattva ideal, someone who is determined to be of maximum assistance to as many living beings as possible. And how many is that? All of them! The vision is a big one, an even if initially we merely take on the role of Bodhisattva-in-training, we can still accomplish amazing things in our world. The path to becoming a Bodhisattva is called ‘The Six Perfections”, six beneficial minds that we can train in. In this series, we will take a look at each of the perfections individually, as well as consider how integrating all of them into our lives can be so uplifting.
