Learn to Meditate: Turning the Mind into an Ally
November 30–December 2, 2012
Meditation practice allows us to find peace within ourselves while developing a strong, yet flexible, mind. Designed for beginners, our Learn to Meditate retreats offer accessible meditation practice techniques, as well as a perspective on how they work. This technique is based on the bestselling book, Turning the Mind into an Ally by Shambhala’s spiritual leader, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.
Greg Smith, a well known sangha artist and thangka painter, has lived and painted at Shambhala Mountain Center for many years. He has been a student of mediation since 1976, first with Chögyam Trungpa and later with his son Sakyong Mipham. Greg has taught meditation and Buddhist studies since 1982.
