About the Retreat
The Buddhist view is that we’ve all got extraordinary potential to cultivate our minds, our consciousness. It’s not some special gift that only some people have; it’s innate within all of us.
But potential for what? Not something holy, like heaven in the sky, or next life, but potential to lessen fear, depression, anxiety, neediness, low self-esteem and to grow love, contentment, compassion, clarity, courage and the other qualities we so badly want.
The key to accomplishing this is to understand the deeply ingrained instinct of attachment. As Lama Yeshe says, “I could tell you about attachment for one whole year,” but we will never begin to understand it until we go deeply into our own minds, unraveling the complexity of the emotions, seeing them clearly and learning how to harness and transform them, thus becoming effortlessly in charge of our own minds and lives.
