Meditation Teachers can offer important tools to society for relating to these tumultuous times.
Meditation promotes mindfulness and equanimity – the ability to let emotional states arise and pass without becoming overwhelming. With mindfulness, we are able to become aware of our mind states, rather than carried away by them. It promotes the state of equanimity, the ability to respond skillfully to situations. Instead of responding with knee-jerk reactions, blame, resentment and anger we can choose healthier responses, such as loving-kindness and compassion. (1)
Help make meditation available in underserved communities. Teach meditation posture, breathing techniques and contemplative methods for finding peace of mind.
In order to promote meditation as a resource for mindfulness and equanimity in society, Tibetan Buddhist teacher, Pema Khandro Rinpoche with offer an online Meditation Teacher Training beginning April 10th.
