The Magic of Meditation ~ Weekend Meditation Retreat

with Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang

It is said we can measure our life in the number of breaths we take. We are breathing all the time. How wonderful it would be if we could give every breath special value. It would make our life truly meaningful. This can really happen through meditation, especially the magical practice of Taking and Giving.

Taking and Giving is a powerful meditation for bringing love, compassion and wisdom quickly and directly into our lives. Imagine becoming the kind of person who can solve all their own problems of anger, jealousy, attachment and other delusions. Someone who has a special method for dealing with their own sickness. Someone who has stable happiness and whose boundless good heart is a source of inspiration and benefit to others. Imagine being a person of whom everyone could say they were better for having met you. With Taking and Giving we can be that person. We can transform who we are.

Genla Kunsang will introduce us to the special meditations which make up Taking and Giving. She will explain the profound wisdom which makes this practice work – and how what begins as correct imagination in meditation produces very real and practical effects in our daily lives. Based on many years’ personal experience, she will give us the inspiration and confidence we need to try to this special magic for ourselves.
