Walking Meditation Workshop

Sunday, September 12 at 1:30 pm
Instructor: Tulku Yeshi Gyatso
Free, donations accepted; all are welcome

Learn how to turn your daily walk into a sacred experience which can help you establish merit. Traditionally, Tibetan masters have meditated while walking. This practice is good both physically and mentally. Tulku Yeshe will lead us in a half-hour training on how to meditate while we walk. We will then, as a group, walk through the Sakya Monastery neighborhood to practice walking meditation. Tulku Yeshi will also teach us how to safely treat our smaller neighbors (insects and small animals) during walking meditation.
