Many of us would like to develop a stronger meditation practice, yet we experience challenges to make it a priority. Many of Buddha’s teachings are specifically designed to help us overcome these challenges. In the Buddhist Stages of the Path tradition, special contemplative meditations are presented that can profoundly transform our understandings and motivations, specifically challenging our tendencies to avoid, procrastinate and engage half-heartedly with our practice (and in our lives).
In this half-day retreat, Kadam Matthew will explore how we can use contemplative meditation and the wisdom presented in the Lamrim teachings to create a practice that sustains us throughout our lives.
