Stillness in a Shaken World:

Developing Confidence in the Power of Our Mind

February 23-25

A Weekend with Kadam Lucy James

 

“Without improving our mind, there is no way to solve our human problems.” Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

In an increasingly unstable world, and within our own changing lives, it is easy to feel shaken and uncertain about our future. In this powerful weekend of teachings and meditation, Kadam Lucy James will help us see that despite external conditions, it is possible to develop and maintain a peaceful, stable, and centered mind, and rely upon it with unwavering certainty.

Buddha’s insightful instructions on understanding the mind are unsurpassed. Through following this skilled advice, we can understand the nature and function of our mind, experience our limitless mind in meditation, and learn to stay connected to our pure potential. Eventually we can experience happiness all the time and remain undisturbed by anything life throws our way. We can tap into this transformative power right now and be an unshakable source of positivity for everyone we meet. Everyone welcome!

Stillness in a Shaken World Friday Night Lecture: Our Power for Lasting Change 7:00-8:15 PM

In this Friday Night Lecture, Kadam Lucy James will help us develop confidence in our potential for transformation by helping us understand the nature and function of our mind. We will learn how to identify with our mind’s limitless and pure potential and recognize how our mind creates our reality. With this powerful knowledge, we can begin to rely on our ability to transform our world and create lasting change we can trust.

Stillness in a Shaken World Saturday Meditation Retreat: Experiencing our Limitless Mind in Meditation 9 AM- 4 PM

In this Saturday retreat, Kadam Lucy will guide us in three  sessions of simple but profound meditations on the mind. During these meditation sessions, our mind will become progressively more subtle and peaceful, causing us to experience a profound inner stillness and tranquility. Through connecting with this naturally peaceful and pure state, we can gain deep insight into the nature of our mind and connect with its limitless potential for change.

Stillness in a Shaken World Special Sunday Morning Meditation: Staying Connected to Our Pure Potential 10-11:30 AM

In this Special Sunday Morning Meditation, we can end our weekend with confidence in the pure and transformative power of our mind. Kadam Lucy will give practical advice on how to integrate these simple methods into daily life. By following these proven methods, we can stay connected to our mind’s potential for reliable happiness and permanent inner peace.

Although attending all events provides maximum benefit, each day’s event is stand-alone in nature and will help you gain experience  – drop-ins always welcome!
