What is Mindfulness?

With Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Osung

Sat 5 Sept Online

About the course

Training in mindfulness and concentration is not just watching our mind, but actively improving our mind by keeping it focused on a positive object. This practice involves three main mental factors: mindfulness, alertness and conscientiousness.

During this half day course, we will learn how to improve our concentration in meditation by using mindfulness, alertness and conscientiousness.

Improving our concentration in this way gives us the freedom to accomplish whatever we wish for.

‘If we wish to elevate our mind we must merge it with the practice of virtue by steadily applying the power of mindfulness. This is the very heart of meditation’ – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Everyone is welcome!
