At the heart of the Buddha’s teachings is the promise of achieving freedom of mind.
In the Mahayana tradition, mind training—also known as lojong—is a type of skillful means used to transform suffering and bring about greater well-being. Just as we can train the body and improve our physical wellness through exercise, we can also train the mind to grow in wisdom, compassion, and awareness.
According to Tibetan Buddhist monk Khentrul Lodrö T’hayé, if we know how to work with our mind, we can find freedom in every challenge in life.
Join Khentrul Lodrö T’hayé on September 27 for a virtual conversation and demonstration of ancient lojong techniques for transforming any obstacle, including pain, anxiety, and stress, into greater mental well-being that benefits us and the people around us.
With three khenpo degrees, T’hayé has been nicknamed by his students the “mind training Khenpo” because of his passion for teaching mind training practices.
