Concentration | Day Course – Jul 14

Saturday, July 14 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm

- £8 – £25

With Visiting Teacher, Gen Kelsang Tubchen

We are delighted to invite Gen Tubchen, the National Spiritual Director of the Nordic region, who has many years of retreat experience from her time at Tharpaland International Kadampa Retreat Centre.

  • Learn practical methods to overcome distractions
  • Develop the peace of concentration
  • Discover how to absorb deeply and gather your mind

The specific objective of this course is to understand what concentration is, why it is so important, and to learn how to develop our powers of concentration through systematic training.

 

Concentration completely determines the power and effectiveness of our spiritual practice, and the extent to which our mind is under control. Therefore, it is of paramount importance to our happiness and well-being, and empowers our ability to be of greatest benefit to others.
