Meditation transforms our mind into a positive state and improves the quality of our life on many levels – our relationships, our family, our work, and our physical and emotional well-being.
In this weekend retreat we will be learning about the meditation practice of “Heart Jewel”. Heart Jewel is a well loved meditation practice for Kadampa Buddhist meditators worldwide. Practiced by millions of people throughout the world (and over many generations) this ancient, traditional, and powerful practice is the perfect way to prepare our mind for meditation.
This course is especially ideal for those who sincerely wish to make progress in their meditations on the stages of the path to enlightenment – loving kindness, compassion and wisdom. In this course we will learn how to stay inspired in our meditation practice, how to fill our mind with positive energy, and how remove internal obstacles that prevent success in our daily meditations. If you feel your meditation needs a “boost”, or would like it to be greatly enhanced, then this course will be perfect for you!
