Meditation & Discussion; The Weekly Bangkok Dharma Gathering


with & Craig Smith & Peter Seidler
December 20 / 5:30 PM - December 20 / 7:00 PM

The Weekly Dharma Gathering is a perfect introduction to the Shambhala Buddhist teachings and an opportunity to connect with other practitioners. It begins with a group meditation practice, a talk by one of our meditation instructors, and then a discussion period. Meditation instruction is also provided. 


This weekly class is an opportunity to meditate in a supportive group setting, to learn about how to apply the principles of meditation to everyday life, and to meet and mingle with fellow practitioners. Open to anyone and everyone. This is a drop-in class; no registration or fee is required; donations are always welcome.  Bring your friends!


At the Yoga Elements Studio (BTS Chidlom), on the 23rd floor of the Vanissa Building (behind the Central Department Store), on Soi Chidlom.  Call 02-655-5671 if you need help finding it.


 


“In meditation, we train the mind to wake up.  First we train it to focus on what is happening in the moment, underneath our habitual self-absorption. The mindfulness and awareness we learn offer the revolutionary opportunity to observe the movement of the mind without being swept into it.  In following the breath we soon see that thoughts are mere vibrations of the mind, not our personal identity.  In relaxing our grip on “me,” we’re laying the foundation for a shift in attitude that has the power to change our lives.”    ~Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
