It’s tempting to think of our distracted and ruminating minds as enemies of the quietude and inspiration we seek in meditation. Same goes for our troublesome emotions and compulsive behaviors. Yet the paradoxical key to resolving the various tempests in our lives is actually right in front of us, staring us in the face.

Join author, meditation teacher, and psychotherapist Ralph De La Rosa, part of “the next generation of meditation teachers,” for an insightful evening of learning simple and accessible tools for revolutionizing your meditation practice.

Program Details

  • Tame your monkey mind with a 20-minute embodied samatha (mindfulness of breath) meditation in our Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room while the sounds of the K2 Lounge compete for your attention.
  • Then join the author for a lecture and Q&A discussion about the busy mind and how we can learn from it.
  • Afterward stop by the shop for a book signing of the author’s newest release, The Monkey Is the Messenger: Meditation and What Your Busy Mind Is Trying to Tell You.
