We provide opportunities for everyone to grow and explore their spiritually regardless of who they are or where they come from. Our purpose is to help people discover happiness and inner peace through meditation and the teachings of Buddha.
We offer a variety of meditation courses - from drop-in classes to more in-depth weekend workshops. Our main center is located in Castleton, with classes held at the Irvington Lodge in Irvington every Tuesday and monthly workshops in Zionsville, Fort Wayne, Terre Haute, and Greenwood.
Every single living being has “Buddha Nature” within them – a pure essential nature that has the capacity for limitless love, compassion, and wisdom. Through guided meditations and teachings, we can learn how to identify and connect with our Buddha nature, abandoning the limiting thoughts and views we hold that keep us stuck.
Explore and deepen your knowledge of love in its purest form. A type of love that has the power to bring lasting happiness. Learn how to discover this love to be of immense practical benefit to others.
Each Tuesday evening class during July and August will address a verse from one of Buddhism’s best-loved teachings, Eight Verses of Training the Mind, composed by the great Tibetan Bodhisattva, Geshe Langri Tangpa. This short, but very profound poem shows how we can transform all of life’s difficulties into valuable spiritual insights.
The book New Eight Steps to Happiness is a commentary the Eight Verses, and is the book that we will be referencing for these classes.
Drop in for a 30-minute mid-day rejuvenation with a gentle, guided meditation to calm and clear the mind, let go of tension and get re-focused for the rest of your day. These short classes will improve our mindfulness, helping us to subdue our distractions and be more present, in the moment, with a positive state of mind.
Classes include a short talk and simple guided meditation.
We often encounter many problems and adversities in our daily life. But we have a choice in how we can react to those problems and adversities! We can allow ourselves to become overwhelmed by these difficulties and worry, or we can develop the confidence of a warrior that can joyfully and courageously embrace these difficulties and transform them into opportunities for real spiritual growth!
