We have a last minute invitation that we are excited about and hope you will consider. This weekend we will be hosting an online video workshop with Pema Chödrön called Making Friends With Your Mind. Pema is a favorite teacher of ours at Fish Lake Sangha and, thanks to one of our friends, we have the opportunity to share this workshop with you all.
We will begin on Saturday at 10 am and end at 6 pm. We will start the following day on Sunday at 10 am and end at 6 pm as well. This will be a silent retreat and an opportunity to really immerse yourself in these wonderful teachings that can help you to transform your life.
Please RSVP as space is limited. There is no cost to you for this workshop. If space is available and you cannot attend the entire weekend, you are welcome to join us for portions of the weekend.
Below is a little more information from the Omega Institute website about the workshop.
The Buddha taught that the mind is wild and the human experience is full of unpredictability and paradox, joys and sorrows, successes and failures. But through good meditation techniques, a simple attitude, and unconditional friendliness toward ourselves, we can work toward taming the one thing that causes our suffering: the mind.
During this weekend with Pema Chödrön, we learn how to set up a life routine for transforming the mind to be more pliable and content. The weekend includes talks, guided meditations, and question-and-answer sessions with Pema Chödrön, and additional sessions led by Tim Olmsted.
