Medicine for the mind in Chicago

In November Kadampa Meditation Centre Chicago welcomed Gen Norden for a weekend event.

"On Saturday Gen Norden led a morning retreat, Medicine for the Mind at Pleasant Home, a historic home located in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park. We had a full house, including many newcomers."

Experiencing peace of mind through meditation

"Gen Norden highlighted that happiness and suffering are states of mind, so the main causes cannot be found outside the mind. She then shared valuable methods to increase joy in our life through Dharma practice.

"When we asked our attendees what their favourite part of the retreat was, two newcomers highlighted the benefits of engaging in group meditation:

“It’s a really wonderful experience to get to practice with people who’ve done meditation.“
