New 6 week Course ” Transforming Thoughts Emotions and changing Habits through Meditation”
Palpung Centre, Banteer
Wednesday evenings 7pm
Just because you think it or feel it doesn’t make it true!
“Thinking is the natural activity of the mind. Meditation is not about stopping your thoughts/emotions Meditation is simply a process of resting the mind in its natural state, which is open to and naturally aware of thoughts, emotions and sensations as they occur”
Yongey Mingyur RinpocheIn meditation there are many approaches we can use to working with Emotion. First, through observing and our mind in an open, allowing way, we get to know our thoughts and emotions. By observing we can see clearly that thought/ emotion isn’t solid. We don’t have to be scared of them or enamoured by them and we definitely don’t have to believe them to be true! We have no freedom when we slavishly follow our thoughts and emotion , believing it all to be true. We get all worked up and stressed. In this way we loose our peace of mind, our equilibrium. When we deeply know this in every cell of our body we can experience true peace of mind.
