The public is welcome to attend a nature of wellness event from 7:30-9:30 p.m. May 5 at Walley's Resort and Hot Springs with Lobsang Samten, former personal attendant to the Dali Lama.
Samten will offer guided meditations, gentle stretching exercises and discussion about the practice of well being.
Meditation is a relaxed yet alert state in which the thoughts slow down and a natural blissful feeling pervades on compassion for self and others. These styles of meditation do not require any particular belief, just a desire for wellness. Children are welcome.
Samten is a former personal attendant to His Holiness the Dali Lama. He is founder and director of the Tibetan Buddhist Centers located in five major cities in the U.S. and the creator of the sand mandala at many locations, including the museum at Tahoe City and the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno.
