One-day Online Meditation Retreat "Thoughts, thoughts, thoughts ... quieting the mind in meditation" with Ayya Vimala
Saturday, April 17th, 2021 - 10:45 am to 8 pm
Please join us for a one-day meditation retreat on with Ayya Vimala from Tilorien Buddhist Monastery (Belgium).
Topic: "Thoughts, thoughts, thoughts ... quieting the mind in meditation"
When we sit in meditation we want to stop, relax and just have some time for ourselves. But our mind seems to have a life of it's own and is still busy planning or thinking about the events of the day. In this one-day retreat Ven. Vimala will discuss the underlying conditioning behind the thinking mind and give some techniques to quiet the mind with wisdom and understanding.
