What is Meditation?
Meditation is one of the essential disciplines in the path of self-transformation. Developing the core skills of mindfulness, emotional receptivity and positive energy takes place in the structured setting of formal meditation practice. With the meditation skills we develop, we cultivate our pure heart nature and learn to manifest ourselves genuinely in our daily lives. Through meditation we come to understand how things and events truly exist. Teachers, mentors and instructors are essential supports to mastering this ancient contemplative practice.
These training sessions are appropriate for all level of students and spiritual beliefs.

Dana (generosity) Practice
In the Buddhist tradition, the teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless; in the Buddhist tradition we also practice dana, or generosity, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. Dana is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is given from the heart. Your generosity is a gift that supports not just the teachers, but also the Sangha, the larger Dharma community, and your own practice.
