Om the Way to Serenity

It doesn't take much concentration to conclude that our minds are overworked. To-do lists, stress from traffic and constant "what's for dinner" plans fill our heads even when relaxing. If you'd like to learn how to control your scattered thoughts and clear your mind through meditation, check out a workshop at the Dallas Shambhala Meditation Center called How to Meditate: Turning the Mind into an Ally, based on the book of the same name by Tibetan Buddhist leader Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. In the workshop, psychotherapist Will Handy will teach the practices of mediation, how to handle distracting thoughts, sit with good posture and breathe correctly. The workshop is $60 per person and will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Dallas Shambhala Meditation Center, 13720 Midway Road, Suite 108 in Farmers Branch. To register, visit
