Meditative Adventures with the Subtle Mind

In this series Alexandra 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 such as anger, hurt and compulsions quickly. In this 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.
