dealing with distractions | August 10
Our mind is naturally peaceful, but distractions and mental turbulence disconnects us from this sense of peace and well-being. Distractions do not just obstruct our peace, but interfere with our capacity to absorb and become quiet within meditation practice. Fortunately, there are plenty of accessible, skillful methods to work with and overcome distractions, both temporarily and in the long-run! Diane Parent, a long-time Buddhist practitioner and teacher, will give guidance and help on how each person can accomplish this so they can find the happiness they are looking for.
