Seven Points Mind Training is a classic text of Tibetan Buddhism written by Geshe Chekawa 1000 years ago. A favorite text in all of Tibet, it explains clearly and simply how to understand and experience emptiness, the true nature of reality, and how bodhichitta can be lived: the unconditional love for all beings that inspires us to enlightenment. The weekend consists of conversations, guided meditations and interactive discussions that can deepen our spontaneous ability to respond to life with wisdom and compassion. The text also provides clear guidelines for how to act as Bodhisattva in the world. To practice love, compassion, and skillful means in our interactions with other beings – which allows us to live a life full of joy, relaxed, and in peace with ourselves and the world, even if this life sometimes seems very difficult.
The retreat consisted of guided meditations on the topics, informal talks, discussions and chi gong for the mind and body.
