Peace and Restoration Beneath The Turbulence
Teacher: Pat Coffey
The Buddha offered a path and practices for his students to learn how to navigate and settle peacefully in relationship to the vicissitudes of life. All of us are subject to what he called the 8 Worldly Winds. They are gain, loss, status, disgrace, censure, praise, pleasure and pain. Most people spend their entire lives buffeted by the turbulence of these ‘winds’, never knowing the deep peace and restoration possible by learning how to work skillfully with these energies.
Meditation teachers and practitioners all have their favorite methods and techniques. Tonight, I’ll share what I consider the most important aspect of practice. The methodology of how to conceptualize and work with the Worldly Winds in a way that brings deep peace and restoration of body and mind.
Full meditation instructions will be offered thus making tonight’s program suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners alike.
