• Inner Strength in Uncertain Times
Instead of becoming frustrated and upset when life throws unavoidable problems at us, we can use the spiritual practice of meditation to develop a strong and flexible mind.
Time & Location
Oct 17, 2020, 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM CDT
Instead of becoming frustrated and upset when life throws unavoidable problems at us, we can use the spiritual practice of meditation to develop a strong and flexible mind. By practicing the meditations taught in this workshop, we can gradually develop the mindset and inner strength that can withstand and grow from every type of outer misfortune and emotional struggle.
Buddha's meditations on "training the mind" are open to everyone, regardless of background and belief, and provide a time-tested method to find peace amidst our uncertain times. Absolutely everyone is welcome; no previous experience is necessary.
