POWER OF A PEACEFUL MIND
with Concetta Lamore
In situations of conflict, we tend to become angry easily. We even think anger will help us ‘win’ our battles, and we rely on it as if it were our trusted friend. The mind of anger, however, leaves a trail of broken relationships, lost opportunities, and painful feelings in its wake. In this series, we will learn to meditate on patience and discover how to transform a disturbed, turbulent mind into a peaceful attitude. Learn more
Wednesdays, Sept. 6 – 27, 7 – 8:30 pm in Millburn Mall
Reality is not “out there” separate from the mind. Appearances are the nature of the mind and are inseparable from it. In the wisdom tradition, we learn that investigating the nature of reality gives us the freedom to choose happiness and peaceful states of mind over delusions and suffering. By learning to meditate on wisdom, we can identify with our potential and solve our inner problems.Offered in September in Millburn Mall, Ridgewood and Shrewsbury.
