Overcoming Entertainment Mentality

with Jeff Wigman
November 2 / 9:00 AM - November 2 / 1:00 PM

The practice of meditation could be described as relating with cool boredom, refreshing boredom, boredom like a mountain stream. It refreshes because we do not have to do anything or expect anything. -- Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche - From The Myth of Freedom

Sometimes our meditation seems full of expectation and struggle. Where do these expectations come from, and what do they do for us? What would it be like to give up our expectations completely? Join us for a direct look into the habitual pursuit of entertainment, and explore the possibility of the alternative - contentment.

The workshop will include meditation instruction, sitting practice, presentation, and contemplative exercises directed at illuminating what it is that we ignore when we grasp at distractions.
