About the course
Concentration is something we all need in everyday life, however, it is essential for those wishing to make progress in meditation.
Concentration is an inner strength that allows us to focus without distraction and causes our mind to mix with the meditation object. This causes our mind to change.
If we want results from our meditation we must learn the methods for increasing our concentration.
In this workshop you will learn how mindfulness is an integral aspect of concentration, receive step by step instructions on how we can gradually increase the power of both mindfulness and concentration.
