Khenpo Karma Tenkyong
Steadying the Heart: the Mindfulness Practice of Refuge
The Buddhist path centres on the practice of refuge. Through wisdom, compassion, joy, and balance, our innate human capacities, we can develop our hearts to be a more reliable dwelling place. In this mindfulness meditation practice, we will define and explore refuge to the three jewels—the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. We will work with our innate qualities, as well as develop ways to release the obstacles that often get in the way of living with more ease, happiness, and peace so that we all may steady our hearts. This day-mindfulness practice is appropriate for both beginners and more experienced meditators.
