Joy of Meditation Buddhist Retreat
Buddhist nun Gen Kelsang Chokyi will share methods to overcome the turbulence of our minds so that we can connect more deeply with the stillness, happiness and contentment that is naturally abiding within us from 2 to 5 p.m., February 12, at Kadampa Meditation Center Wicker Park.
She says, "The focus of this retreat will be on the mind of love and how it protects you. With mindfulness and alertness, we can gain familiarity of this precious mind and experience the joy of meditation!"
