Public Talk: Unconditional Happiness
In this special event, renowned meditation master Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will discuss his book, Our Pristine Mind: A Practical Guide to Unconditional Happiness. Rinpoche will offer a guided meditation and will share inspiring principles for working with our minds to improve our relationships, find peace and tranquility, and develop the life-changing ability to achieve unconditional happiness.
If we want to release stress and mental and emotional discomfort, increase our vitality, and connect with the world in the most beautiful, harmonious, and powerful way, achieving unconditional happiness through meditation is the key.
One-day Retreat: Pristine Mind
Join Rinpoche for a special workshop exploring the pristine nature of the mind. Rinpoche will guide participants to explore how to distinguish between ordinary mind, with its thoughts, feelings and mental events, and Pristine Mind, a deep inner refuge that we can access at any time.
Using simple language based on teachings from his book, Our Pristine Mind: A Practical Guide to Unconditional Happiness, Rinpoche will provide precise, experiential instructions drawn from the Dzogchen mind-class teachings that make this life-transforming realization attainable for all. These teachings are deeply relevant whether we are just seeking a happier life or are pursuing the spiritual journey all the way to enlightenment.
No background with meditation is necessary.
