Learn To Meditate
January 4–6, 2019
It seems we all agree that training the body through exercise, diet, and relaxation is a good idea. So why don’t we think about training our minds? This weekend retreat will give accessible and powerful meditation practice techniques to help us find peace within ourselves while developing a strong and flexible mind. We will draw from Turning the Mind Into an Ally, the best-selling book by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, as we explore this question together in a contemplative and nurturing environment.
Steve Seely has trained under the direction of both the founder of Shambhala Training, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and his son, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, for 40 years. He served for five years as Resident Director for Shambhala Training in Vancouver, BC, has completed a traditional Tibetan Buddhist 3-year retreat, and was Managing Director of the Nitartha Institute for Higher Buddhist Studies for many years.
