Information om evenemang

During this retreat we will integrate meditation practices to cultivate a calm and focused mind with the analytical meditations from the joint Discovering Buddhism module “How to develop Bodhicitta & Transforming Problems”. 

For participants of the Discovering Buddhism course this provides an opportunity to both review and deepen the practices covered in the module. For other participants it provides an opportunity to have a practical and experiential introduction to these practices.

We will discover the clear meditation instructions available in Tibetan Buddhism that enable us to develop our innate qualities of loving kindness and compassion. Become skilled at applying these techniques to generate the mind of bodhichitta, the wish to attain enlightenment for the benefit of others, which is the heart of Buddha’s teachings.

We will also consider the disadvantages of self-cherishing and the advantages of cherishing others more than ourselves. Get inspired to practice caring more and more for others. Learn how to employ the special techniques of mind training, or lojong, as a means to transform problems into happiness and learn to like problems as much as ice cream.
