Controlling the Wild Elephant Mind

Training the Mind – Meditation in Action

Wednesday 29 April 7 – 8:30pm

During the meditation break, we should bear in mind the compassion, patience and other virtuous minds we generated during our meditation session and try to put them into practice.” ~ Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Universal Compassion

In this class, we will look at integrating our practice on training the mind into our daily life by meditating and applying our practice continually with everyone we encounter – externally remaining natural but internally maintaining  a special motivation to increase the virtuous minds generated in our meditation session.

Learn techniques to control this wild elephant mind and avoid coming under the influence of negative, suffering minds. We can learn to control all the adverse situations we find ourselves in, into a meaningful practice that will increase our compassion and wisdom.

This class is based on Training the Mind in Seven Points by twelfth century Bodhisattva, Geshe Chekhawa.

We offer this class by livestream two times each week to make it easier for people to attend:

Sundays 2:30 – 4pm (first class of the week)
Wednesdays 7 – 8:30pm (second class of the week).
