The Power of Intention – A Free Public Talk With Gen Kelsang Menla
Friday, January 24, 6:30pm-8:00pm
Unitarian Universalist Church of Midland
With our busy lives and even busier thoughts, we can often feel pulled about by emotions and circumstances. Meditation can help. But how? Positive affirmations, mindfulness, visualization, mantra- there are so many presentations of meditation. How can we utilize meditation as a practical and effective tool for positive change?
This talk will explain an easy to understand practice of meditation which focuses on the use of intention in three simple steps. With focused intention we channel our thoughts and energy in a meaningful direction, thereby harnessing the power of our mind. Through this we can take control of our uncontrolled thoughts, transform our experience of life, and live with a clarity of purpose and intention in each day.
Everyone is welcome.
