The Healing Power of Meditation
We all wish and strive for good health, mental and physical. What we discover within the ancient wisdom of Buddha’s teachings, are powerful methods for healing. We can learn to use meditation as medicine to heal our heart, through greatly improving our love and compassion. And through a special healing meditation, known as taking and giving, (also known as tonglen), we can learn to help others heal as well..
In this series, we will explore this beautiful practice and learn how to integrate it into our daily life. In particular we will learn how this practice enables us to actualize our potential to become the most beneficial being we can be.
- Apr 1: Helping Ourselves, Helping Others
- Apr 8: A Special Healing Meditation
- Apr 15: Giving Love
- Apr 22: The Power of the Imagination
- Apr 29: A Vision of a Joyful Life
The Power of Intention to Accomplish What We Seek
In Buddhist practice we are asked to consider the question, ‘Who are you?’ And also, ‘What do you seek?’ Without clear answers to these questions it is difficult to accomplish anything in our life, whether it be external goals, such as career and relationships, or internal ones, such as happiness, or becoming the person we wish to be.
In this series of talks and guided meditations, we will get to explore these questions for ourselves. When we align our intentions and actions with a clear sense of our potential, amazing accomplishments will arise. The power of intention can take us to wonderful experiences or terrible ones. It has taken some people to the moon and some to enlightenment. Where it will take us depends on how we direct it.
