Thursday Meditation Series

Heal Your Mind, Heal Your Life

April 18 – May 16

Thursdays | 6 – 7:30 pm

Cost: $10 | Free for members

Mind is the most powerful thing in the world and is the creator of all our experiences. Without knowing the nature and function of our mind and the various parts of our mind, like feelings and intentions, we remain with an uncontrolled mind, which leads to states of unhappiness, frustration and suffering. Through understanding and identifying the different parts of our mind that are functioning with every moment of awareness, we can start to break unhelpful thought patterns that keep us stuck, unable to fulfill our deepest wishes.

Through meditating on the nature of the mind, we will discover that at its deeper levels, the mind is spacious, peaceful and clear with the capacity to experience our own limitless peace, wisdom and compassion. We begin to discover that we can heal the mind by letting go of inner states that lead to pain and cultivating states of mind that lead to peace and happiness.

Everyone is welcome.
