Shiné Weekend: The Practice of Calm Abiding
April 18, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - April 20, 2015 @ 5:00 pm$200.00
Amrit Wagner will lead an in depth exploration of the Shiné meditation practice. Shiné is also known as Shamatha meditation.
By using the breath as a guide, the external and internal distractions are pacified, so that the thoughts and emotional turmoil of the mind are brought to rest (SHI = pacify), and thus one returns to one’s internal center and abides there (NE = remain). Learn how a calmer, more relaxed and more spacious mind makes dealing with one’s self and with others easier and more enjoyable. We will do sitting practice, and between sessions, to support us – some movement (for body awareness), as well as listen to music, and share wisdom stories. Included is a round of interpersonal exchange, which brings us knowledge about ourselves, and shows us how our mind works.
Experienced meditators and newcomers are equally welcome!
Teacher: Amrit Wagner is an authorized meditation teacher under the guidance of the spiritual head of the RIC, Dungsey Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche.
