All of us have a pure Buddha nature at our heart. Buddha’s teachings show us how we can reveal our pure potential so we can be happier, have peaceful minds and lead a meaningful life. This class, based on the teachings of Venerable Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, offers practical instructions on how to develop joy and inner peace for ourselves and others.
Each class includes a guided meditation and a Buddhist teaching. Everyone is welcome. Thursday’s 7-8:30pm. Class fee: $10.
Start your weekend off right. Once a month we will have a Friday night lecture suitable for everyone. With teachings on practical Buddhist philosophy and guided meditations, these lectures provide a welcome break from our busy lives, and leave us feeling refreshed and energized.
Sundays, 10-11:15am with Kadampa Teacher Mike Racadio
The practices of engaging in giving, moral discipline, patience, effort, mental stabilization and wisdom are very virtuous and a source of great merit. However, when these actions are motivated by the precious mind of bodhichitta they become extremely powerful and are called the six perfections. This is the true pathway to enlightenment.
Wednesdays, 6-7pm Introduction to Meditation with Patric Dixon
This class explores meditations presented in The Living Meditation Series by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Each week students learn meditations to relax body and mind, find inner peace, achieve mental clarity, and develop a kind and compassionate attitude towards others.
‘When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within. This feeling of contentment and well-being helps us to cope with the busyness and difficulties of daily life.’
Join us for 30 minutes of brief meditation instruction followed by guided meditation. The purpose of this class is to help people gain personal experience of inner peace through the practice of meditation, to overcome their daily problems, and to find real happiness in their hearts so they can be of benefit to those around them.
Registration: $5. No charge for monthly members. This class is suitable for people with entry level experience or experienced meditators.
No preregistration is required, all are welcome.
