"Taking the mind as the object of meditation has a number of advantages. It makes it easier to attain tranquil abiding, to overcome external distractions, and to realize emptiness."

- Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Clear Light of Bliss

Join us for a week-long retreat absorbing into the nature of the mind. First we will spend time identifying our own mind and then we will train in developing concentration on it. This meditation has many functions but its main one is improving our ability to hold our meditation object single pointedly. It will also give us a much more experiential understanding of Buddha's main teaching - that all happiness and suffering come from the mind - and will therefore deepen our resolve to train our mind. Gaining experience of the nature of the mind also opens us up to a deeper understanding of emptiness and the practice of Tantra.

The meditations during this week will be based on teachings from  Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's  The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra.
