TAMING THE MONKEY MIND RETREAT
ATISHA’S SEVEN POINT MIND TRAINING
If left to their own devises our minds can take us into challenging and unwanted places. They are like a monkey swinging from tree to tree. They never settle and are never satisfied. In this retreat, we will look at how the mind works and ways to bring it back under our control. The retreat is secular and pragmatic.
The practice involves refining and purifying one’s motivations and attitudes. The 59 slogans that form the root text of the mind training practice are designed as a set of antidotes to undesired mental habits that cause suffering. Lojong transforms our mind by turning away from self-centeredness and cultivating instead the mental habits that generate the awakened mind that puts the benefit of others above all else.
The retreat is set in a beautiful apple orchard farm stay in Himachal Pradesh, India, with its own secluded meditation hall in the forest. The retreat is open to beginners as well as more advanced practitioners. There will be some walking involved, so mild fitness is required.
This is an extremely rare opportunity to study Atisha’s Mind Training in such wonderful surroundings. There are limited places, so please book early, as it will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
Food on the retreat will be home-made, vegetarian, and mostly homegrown. If you have any dietary requirements, please let us know when booking.
