chamtrul rinpoche 2022The mind can be like a monkey, jumping here and there - from one emotion or thought to another. In order to find peace and stability, it is useful to calm the mind by giving it something on which to focus, like the breath or sound. Once the mind has settled, it is able to be clearly aware of the truth of what is happening in the moment. This is called insight. The union of both Calm Abiding and Insight is necessary to overcome the scattered ignorance of the ordinary mind - leading to liberation. This retreat will include the explanation and practise of Calm Abiding and Insight Meditation.
