Exploration of the myths and truths of meditation practice.
In our class, each Saturday this month, along with our yoga postures and meditation practice, we will explore some of the myths surrounding meditation practice: Does the mind become peaceful? Or perhaps it is already at peace? Just what is this power that we call ‘mind’?
Handouts will be given. All are welcome.
The student came to the Bodhiharma, crying, “My mind has no peace! I beg you, master, please pacify my mind!”
“Bring your mind here and I will pacify it for you,” replied Bodhidharma.
“I have searched for my mind, and I cannot take hold of it,” said the student. “Now your mind is pacified,” said Bodhidharma. Zen Story
