cultivating a peaceful heart with ajahn vajiro 1 22 21With so much stress, conflict, and tension in the world today, the Buddha’s teachings on cultivating a peaceful heart and mind are very timely. These teachings are not concerned with metaphysical or philosophical speculations, but rather provide practical guidelines for developing and applying mindfulness and wisdom to our experience of life. Through this practice we can learn to live truly meaningful lives with a light and peaceful heart, unburdened by anger, fear, or anxiety. In this interactive workshop, Ajahn Vajiro will provide guidance and skillful means for developing a practice of meditation that can gradually develop peace and clarity and facilitates the arising of deep insight.

This workshop includes talks, guided meditation, and Q&A sessions with Ajahn Vajiro. It is a wonderful opportunity to deepen your understanding and practice of the Dharma and learn more about:

  • The nature of mindfulness
  • Cultivating stillness and silence in meditation
  • Wise reflection on the nature of life
  • The liberating power of seeing things as they truly are
