CALMING THE MIND
We live in a busy world, and we have equally busy minds. Along with stress from work and family life come anxiety, fretting and fearfulness, and sometimes even anger. How do we change the ways we relate to stress? We often see meditation as a way to reach peaceful tranquility or to leave it all behind, but when we try to meditate sometimes it seems like it is not working. In addition to meditation, we need techniques that help us more skillfully manage the stresses we do have, not retreat from them.
Join us for a discussion of meditation and the ways it can help us navigate a
busy life and a busy mind.
The Milwaukee community of White Conch Dharma Center welcomes Ngawang Pema and invites the Atrium community to join us for this teaching which will include a guided group Green Wisdom Light meditation.
The Green Wisdom Light meditation is a unique Tibetan practice that has been adapted to avoid the misunderstandings Westerners commonly experience when doing Tibetan practices. People find this meditation to be very powerful because it provides a more direct experience of the Dharma instead of descriptions and analogies to contemplate.
Ngawang Pema is a registered 500-hour level yoga teacher, Reiki practitioner, ordained Dharma teacher in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition and a member of the Academy of Parish Clergy. She has been practicing mindfulness meditation since 1995 and Tibetan Buddhist meditation since 2001.
