This guided day retreat will provide an introduction to the practice of Buddhist meditation, through which we will be able to develop and maintain a peaceful mind all the time. If our mind is peaceful all the time, we will be happy all the time. In this way we can find real protection from many types of inner problem, such as anger, fear and depression. We will also be protected from many types of outer problem and danger in the future. In short, through practicing meditation every day, we can build a refuge within our own mind that will always be a reliable source of happiness and protection for us. Please join us for this inspiring day of practical teachings and guided meditations with Buddhist monk and meditation teacher, Kelsang Tashi. Everyone is welcome!
