Change Your Mind, Change Your World
Friday Night Lecture & Lamrim Retreat Introduction
Stages of the Path, or ‘Lamrim’, is a special arrangement of all Buddha’s teachings that is easy to understand and put into practice. Lamrim takes us step-by-step through carefully crafted meditations so we can purposefully nourish the qualities in our mind that lead to our happiness and reduce our painful thoughts and feelings. For example, some of the meditations help us enhance our self-confidence, empathy, or contentment. Others aid us in overcoming distractions, anger, or depression.
Overall, by practicing these meditations in conjunction with one another we will notice our mind becoming happier and more peaceful and so ultimately we begin to change our own world week by week and year by year until we perceive the pure and perfect world we all long for. This is because our mind and our world are connected in more ways than we know. How amazing!
Join us for this Friday night lecture as an introduction to Buddhist meditation in general, or use it as preparation to engage in our Lamrim retreat. Everyone welcome!
