Finding Stillness Within: Developing Mindfulness & Concentration with Buddhist Monk Gen Kelsang Chodor | Saturday 20 May, 10am-4.30pm
“When our mind is free from the turbulence of distracting conceptions it becomes calm and smooth. When we are enjoying internal peace and happiness our craving for external sources of pleasure naturally declines and it is easy to remain content.” Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, How to Understand the Mind
Through training in mindfulness and concentration we can gain control of our mind and improve the quality of our life by overcoming harmful states of mind and find stillness and peace within. A person with good concentration has control over their mind, like a well-trained horse that obeys its rider. Pure concentration also helps to make our body and mind comfortable and flexible and is essential if we wish to remain at peace in daily life.
On this day course we will look at methods to improve our mindfulness and concentration both in meditation and in our daily life so that we can maintain a sense of peace and contentment and solve many of our daily problems.
This course will be taught by Buddhist monk, Gen Kelsang Chodor, Resident Teacher of Bodhisattva KMC in Brighton. Ordained in 2001, he is a close disciple of Geshe-la and has studied and practised Buddhism for many years. He is much loved for his relaxed and gentle nature and teaches with great clarity, insight and wisdom, skilfully guiding people to inner peace and happiness in their lives.
