Meditation On The Go: Bringing Meditation Off the Cushion and Into Daily Life

May 19: Four Truths about life – Part 1

May 26: Four Truths about life – Part 2

June 2: Training in giving

June 9: Training in integrity and patience

June 16: The joy of effort

June 23: Developing our concentration and wisdom

 

This is the second of two series on the book Modern Buddhism:  The Path of Compassion and Wisdom by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.  Students do not need to have attended the first series in order to enjoy this series.

During this series, Gen Nyema will show how we can understand Buddha’s very first teaching, the oft-misunderstood Four Noble Truths.  The Four Noble Truths encourages everyone to follow true paths to inner freedom and peace.  During the second half of the series, Gen Nyema will explain how to practice this path, known as the Six Perfections, within the context of our hectic daily life.

Everyone is welcome to attend, no previous experience required.  Drop in for any class.

Class Format

Every class will begin with a brief introduction, followed by a guided breathing meditation and the Liberating Prayer. After meditation, there will be a short teaching and time for Q&A. Class will end with Prayers for World Peace.

    I originally said I would be there next Sunday and would stay for the brunch following, but I forgot I'm going to be out-of-town next weekend. I'll be there the following Sunday, though. Sorry for the mixup!
