April 2019: The Present Moment
We use a lot of mental energy clinging to the past or worrying about the future, but if we embrace the truth of constant change we can solve most of our problems. Our mind will be lighter and every moment will be filled with possibilities. This may sound easier said than done, but through the meditations in this series we can let go of the past, stop worrying about the future, and experience a lighter, happier state of mind.
Taught by Matthew Stein, a senior student of Menlha Center who has been practicing Buddhism for a number of years. An experienced meditator, he has engaged in many meditation retreats. Matt presents these thoughtful teachings in a very practical and light-hearted manner.
