Buddha teaches that all of our problems and unhappiness come from our uncontrolled mind. At this meditation retreat, you’ll learn meditations to bring your mind under control, so that through practise, you can transform problems and bring hope and joy into your life.
We’ll explore meditations from the twelfth-century mind training text “Training the Mind in Seven Points” by Bodhisattva Geshe Chekhawa, with the commentary by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso presented in the book Universal Compassion.
- an opportunity to explore these transformative meditations
- a quiet weekend to think, read, and contemplate
- time to rest and rejuveniate
From Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, you’ll explore these sublime meditations in the quiet surroundings of over one hundred acres of beautiful woodlands at Mount Mary Retreat Centre on the Niagara Escarpment in Ancaster, Ontario. A large part of the retreat will be in silence, a special opportunity in our current world.
