A Clean Slate

Sometimes it can feel so difficult to develop joy. We feel weighed down by sadness, or irritation with others, and even when we try to meditate or engage in other spiritual practices, we just can’t let it go. This is because of the heavy burden of negativity left on our minds from our past actions. To solve this problem, Buddha taught special “purification” practices—simple meditations that wipe the slate of our mind clean.

In this half-day course, Matthew Stein will explain how to practice purification in general, and he will guide one specific method in order to give practical experience. Through using these methods we can gradually remove all traces of negative karma from the deepest levels of our mind, and as a result our meditation and spiritual practice will become easy and joyful.
