How to be More Focused

10 minute breathing meditation ¦ 15 minute practical instructions ¦ 15 minute guided meditation

“By practising meditation we will experience a calm, spacious feeling in our mind, and many of our usual problems will fall away.”  Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Concentration is the nature of a peaceful mind. When our mind is concentrated it is relaxed, peaceful, alert and we feel happy. When meditating, the degree to which we can concentrate determines the effectiveness of our meditations. Therefore, in meditation, as in everyday life, the ability to overcome distractions is very important.

During this course you will learn how to develop and improve your concentration, how to overcome your distractions and how to cultivate your ability to concentrate through training in meditation. You will also learn how mindfulness, alertness and concentration work together to improve your mental peace and well-being.

Through cultivating your concentration, you will be able to accomplish all your goals more easily, calmly and effectively.
