Mind Training, or Lojong, is a practical and inspiring teaching that transforms the mind afflicted by destructive emotions. At the heart of all practices of Tibetan Buddhism, Mind Training puts special emphasis on transforming adversity and joy into the path of awakening. Mind Training encourages us to move away from self-centeredness and towards developing Bodhicitta, the wish that all beings may be happy and free of suffering. Pithy slogans such as Regard all dharmas as dreams and Drive all blames into one help us dive deeply and intimately into our own capacity to develop wisdom and compassion in our lives.
Core Mind Training meditations such as Shamatha (Calm Abiding) and Tonglen (Sending & Receiving) will be taught. The retreat will include teachings, guided meditations, and discussion.
