Meditation instruction – Sat Oct 28

Saturday October 28th 2017 10 am – 12 pm

The teaching will loosely follow this format, but Geshe la may adjust as needed:

10 AM – Instruction
10:45 AM – Practice
Break
11 AM – Q/A and further instruction
11:45 AM – More practice as time permits

This session will open up discussion for any questions from those who attended the first session on September 23, 2017. It is suitable for beginners as well as those who have participated before and would like to review the techniques. You are welcome to join if you missed the last session.

The previous session primarily covered the benefits of meditation, setting the proper motivation, and the basic body positioning. Geshe la will delve further and build on top of this foundation.
