The Art of Peaceful Living Public Talk and Meditation
Saturday, March 16
2pm - 3:30pm
at Phoenix Art Museum (Singer Hall)
with International Teacher Buddhist monk Gen-la Kelsang Jampa
Within our mind lies an extraordinary potential for inner peace and happiness. Through the simple practice of meditation we can learn to access that potential. In meditation we learn to let go of the agitated states of mind, such as anger, that produce unhappiness, and instead to cultivate peaceful, powerful minds such as love, acceptance, wisdom, and joy. We also learn to transform our day-to-day experiences, especially our conflicts and problems, into opportunities for developing these peaceful minds. In this way, we learn the art of being peaceful and the special skill of creating happiness for ourselves and others.
Space is limited, so please register in advance for this special event at Phoenix Art Museum. Everyone is welcome.
