What we're about

Meditation in Evergreen. Everyone is welcome!

Meet like-minded people interested in meditation in Evergreen, CO!

Learn how to meditate or deepen your current meditation practice. In this group we emphasize practical meditations that are useful both "on the cushion" and in our daily lives. Each meeting will include guided meditation, and a talk on how to reduce stress and other problems encountered in daily life, while increasing 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.

These meetups are organized by Kadampa Meditation Center Colorado.

Learn to Let Go and Move On

Needs a location

We often have trouble letting go of painful events and feelings. Negative feelings from the past affect the way we respond to our current life situations, ourself and others. We often blame the situations, ourselves or other people for our problems and then remain trapped in a state of hurt. Through training in mindfulness and meditation, and through practicing the antidote to these problems, we can finally release ourselves from unhappiness completely, leaving us with a tremendous feeling of relief and joy.

During this meditation series, we will be introduced to practical methods to let go of the past and move forward to a brighter future. Each class has guided meditations, which will help us to develop peaceful and positive minds.

The Third Aspect: The Correct View of Emptiness

The wisdom realizing emptiness, the true nature of reality, is profound. Through gaining experience of it, we are able to let go of all the internal obstacles that hold us back from becoming who we really wish to be. Indeed, gaining a deep realization of emptiness has the power to liberate us from suffering altogether and to help us to actualize our highest potential, enlightenment.
