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 or benefit from our meditations.

Kadampa Buddhism (http://kadampa.org/buddhism/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 said “You should know that all phenomena are like dreams.” He also said all phenomena are like illusions. Through understanding and then gaining some experience of buddhas teachings on ‘emptiness’ we can build a foundation to live in the world more lightly and have the flexibility of mind to respond to every situation in a constructive way. Over time, by deepening our experience of this profound wisdom, we can solve all our daily problems and be of maximum benefit to others. Everyone Welcome. Includes guided meditation, a talk and time for questions.

Even though we have a good heart certain people and certain situations seem to trigger feelings of anger and blame. When anger takes over its easy to do and say things that are difficult to take back. Using Buddha’s skillful teachings and meditations on recognizing and overcoming anger, however, we can learn to stop the “Blame Game” and replace our anger with peace and eventually even love. Everyone Welcome.
