Freedom and Happiness – Using Karma to create the future we want
Everybody wants to be happy and free from problems, but few of us experience genuine, lasting happiness or are free from pain and dissatisfaction. By understanding and applying Buddha’s teachings on karma, however, we can discover the “key” to our own happiness and unlock our own potential for permanent freedom. Experience the practical benefits of Buddha’s teachings, learn to overcome your problems and find profound meaning in your life. Each weekly class includes two guided meditations, practical wisdom on how to maintain the experience of the inner peace in daily life and time to discuss the ideas presented.

What we're about

Our weekly meetings are on a drop in basis and we have a really nice group of people attending regularly. We hope you can join us soon. Please check out our message board (https://www.meetup.com/Beacon-Meditation-Group/messages/boards) to see our meditation topics in previous weeks.

A trademark of the meditations we emphasize is the ease in which they can be used both “on the cushion” and in our daily lives. Each meeting will include practical, guided meditation, and a talk on how to reduce stress and other problems encountered in daily life and how to increase mental and physical well-being. There will also be plenty of time to discuss the ideas presented.

Although the meditations and talks are based on Kadampa Buddhist philosophy, you don't need to be a Buddhist to enjoy this group. Kadampa Buddhism stresses a spiritual path of individual transformation and to look within ourselves for the inner peace and happiness we seek. Everyone is welcome!

These group meetings are based out of Kadampa Meditation Center New York, located in Glen Spey, NY. For more information visit http://www.kadampanewyork.org

We hope to meet you soon!
