The Art of Patience with Gen Kelsang Menla
SUNDAY, February 23, 10:30am – 1:00pm (note new day)
The Art of Patient Acceptance
10:30 – 11:30am 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Patience is an inner strength that enables us to accept and grow from whatever life throws at us. Without cultivating patience we remain vulnerable to anxiety and frustration, and it is difficult for us to maintain peaceful relationships with others. If on the other hand we understand what true patience is and how extraordinarily valuable it is, we will be motivated to practice patience in daily life.
In this mini-retreat we will explore teachings and meditations taught by Buddha, which are practical methods for practicing true patience. Through improving our wisdom we can effectively work to change things for the better from a place of peace rather than agitation or anger. By using these methods in our daily life we will develop an inner peace that cannot be disturbed by changing conditions.
Join us in learning how empowering and liberating true patience can be!
This special ½ retreat, led by American Buddhist Monk Gen Kelsang Menla, will give you everything you need to start, refresh, or improve a meditation practice. It is perfect for beginners and those with some experience alike.
