Contemplations to Settle the Mind on Oct. 1st
Stressing out trying to settle the mind and “get concentrated?” Tired of trying to force your attention onto a narrow point of breathing and getting frustrated? We’ll explore setting up the mind/heart with some contemplations that allow for natural and easeful settling into samadhi, rather than trying to force attention onto a tight location. The day will include guided meditation, some reflections and time for Q&A. There will be a traditional meal offering at lunch time – please bring some food to share with the monks and other participants.
Note: This is a dana event, i.e. although registration is required via the Spirit Rock website, there is no required registration fee. Registration is available at this webpage:
