Freeing the Mind

Saturday, June 22 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Freeing the Mind 

While mindfulness can be practiced quite well without Buddhism, Buddhism cannot be practiced without mindfulness. In its Buddhist context, mindfulness meditation has three overarching purposes: knowing the mind; training the mind; and freeing the mind. This class invites beginner and advanced meditators to find a little more freedom in their lives. Led by Rev. August Jensen

Noon- 4 pm


About the teacher:

August received his master’s degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa- a Buddhist contemplative university in Boulder, Colorado. A veteran of the Iraq war, he has worked as a wilderness rites of passage guide, school counselor, and psychotherapist. August joined the Mt. Adams Zen Buddhist temple as a teacher and pastoral counselor in 2018.   He lives here in Trout Lake, WA with his wife Claire (who you may see around our office!) and their son, Asa. August will be heading up our Mental Health services at the Abbey, providing spiritual counseling and support. For those looking for one-on-one guidance in their meditation practice, or needing support with personal, marital, or family difficulties, August can offer a warm and caring presence.
