Learn To Meditate
August 31–September 2, 2018
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.
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 meditation since 1976, first with Chögyam Trungpa and later with his son Sakyong Mipham. Greg has taught meditation and Buddhist studies since 1982.
