What we're about

Meet like-minded people interested in meditation near you! Learn how to meditate or deepen your current meditation practice. 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 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!

Buddha’s teachings on karma explain the relationship between our mind, our actions and our experiences. Everybody has the same two basic wishes; to be happy and free from problems. Karma is a sanskrit word for ‘action’. On the canvas of our own life, we color our experiences of happiness and suffering through our actions.
By understanding and applying Buddha’s teachings on karma, we can identify the actual causes of our suffering and thereby free ourselves from the cycle of pain and dissatisfaction. We are able to become an artist of our own life— learning how to view our present experiences in a positive way, purifying our past karma, and creating the causes for the future happiness we wish to experience.
No previous experience is needed. Everyone is welcome!

It’s so easy in relationships to compare ourselves with others. Inevitably our comparisons lead to the painful feelings of jealousy, envy, and inadequacy. We’re left with a sense that we or our life should be better or different. By feeling not good enough in comparison to someone else being better than ourselves, our 'green with envy’ mindset can become competitive and easily turn any relationship into an unhealthy rivalry. In this meditation series, we will explore teachings and meditations that will enable us to keep a positive and peaceful mind, giving us the strength to say goodby to jealousy and the need to compare ourselves with others.
Join us and learn how to nurture and improve a more loving-kind attitude towards yourself and in all your relationships.
Everyone is welcome!
