FROM CHENREZIG INSTUTUTE
A Centre for Buddhist Study, Meditation, Retreat & Practice
What is the purpose of Meditation?
There might be a rich man whose wealth is equal to that of the entire world yet despite his enormous fortune, if his mind is tied up in an uncontrolled body, he will live in continual suffering. Rich or poor, none of us escape this problem. Try as we may, we never seem to find an end to our difficulties. If we solve one, another immediately takes its place.
Meditation is primarily concerned with caring for the mind. Although our body and mind are intimately related and interconnected, they are quite different types of phenomena. Our body is an object we can see with our eyes, but not so the mind.
The gift of learning to meditate is the greatest gift you can give yourself in this life. For it is only through meditation that you can undertake the journey to discover your true nature, and so find the stability and confidence you will need to live, and die, well.
YES, YOU CAN MEDITATE! WITH VENERABLE SŐNAM
This is a course for anyone who wants to give meditation a go but worries they can't do it! During this day of exploration and gentle learning, you'll hear about the benefits of meditation (and why it's not just for Buddhists) and get to try a range of different meditation techniques that involve body, breath and mind. You'll learn "takeaway" practices that will fit into even the most hectic lives, advice on how to start a regular meditation practice, how to recognise the obstacles and to work skilfully with them. Plus, Sönam (a yoga teacher prior to her ordination) will offer some advice about how to find a sitting posture that works for you — whether that's in a chair or on a cushion.
