Can meditation help us to be more focused, reduce our negative emotions, and enhance our mental and physical wellbeing?
In this episode, Buddhist teacher Geshe Namdak explores the relationship between the mind and the body and discusses the three pillars of mind-training according to Buddhist philosophy: self-awareness, self-discipline and loving kindness and meditation. He also leads three short meditations to develop greater awareness and mindfulness of our body, feelings and mind. Finally, he explains how to employ analytical meditation to reduce the grasp of destructive emotions, addictive behaviour and unwholesome habits.
This talk is part of ‘Healing the Body, Healing the Mind’, a weekend of workshops and talks organised by Science & Wisdom LIVE in collaboration with Jamyang London Buddhist Centre and Land of Medicine Buddha.
