Welcome to the meetup group "Monterey Bay: Buddhist Methods for Transforming the Mind."

We are a group of friendly, sincere, warm-hearted Buddhist practitioners studying Mahayana & Vajrayana Buddhism. We are dedicated to providing both newcomers to Buddhism as well as established practitioners an opportunity to study, learn, & practice the Buddhist teachings. We are seeking to create more meaning in our lives, and to develop a community to support each other in our practice. We help each other see each moment as precious, and to use each moment to cultivate inner-satisfaction, happiness, love, compassion & wisdom. This is an incredible opportunity to change your life, your world, & your mind! Our group is under the guidance of our precious guru, Lama Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche. He is a very humble yet immensely accomplished yogi, whose sincerity, dedication & guidance is very inspiring & brings the Buddhist teachings alive in our daily lives. For our members, we will be providing both an opportunity to meet & study in person as well as online. We have weekly events on a variety of topics, such as the nature of cause and effect, compassion, loving-kindness, and mind training, that will provide everyone with an opportunity to not only learn Buddhist theory but also how to practice Buddhist Meditation & develop an experiential understanding of Buddhism as well. These powerful Buddhist Meditations help to transform the mind, and leave you feeling peaceful, stable, lighter and happier. In addition, we will provide weekly inspiring & insightful quotes from teachings given by our Lama Mingjo Rinpoche as well as other great masters. We encourage others to join us in discussion! This Aptos-based group is intended to serve the greater Monterey Bay area, and is affiliated with sister Meetup groups in Santa Cruz, Los Gatos, and Palo Alto. Come learn, contemplate, cultivate & transform. Make a difference in your life, mind & world. Make it mean something!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
