What we're about

Welcome to the meetup group "Buddhist Methods for Transforming the Mind".

We are a group of friendly, sincere, warm-hearted Buddhist practitioners studying Mahayana & Vajrayana Buddhism. We are dedicated to providing both newcomers to Buddhism as well as established practitioners an opportunity to study, learn, & practice the Buddhist teachings. We are seeking to create more meaning in our lives. To see each moment as precious, and to use each moment to cultivate inner-satisfaction, happiness, love, compassion & wisdom. This is an incredible opportunity to change your life, your world, & your mind!

Our group is under the guidance of our precious Lama Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche, a very humble yet immensely accomplished yogi, whose sincerity, dedication & guidance is very inspiring & brings the Buddhist teachings alive in our daily lives. For our members, we will be providing both an opportunity to meet & study in person as well as online. We have weekly events on a variety of topics, such as cause and effect, compassion and loving-kindness, and mind training, that will provide everyone with an opportunity to not only learn Buddhist theory but also how to practice Buddhist Meditation & develop an experiential understanding of the Buddhism as well. These powerful Buddhist Meditations help to transform the mind, and leave you feeling peaceful, stable, lighter and happier.

In addition, we will provide weekly inspiring & insightful quotes from teachings given by our Lama Mingjo Rinpoche as well as other great masters. These quotes will be posted on the message board & we encourage others to join us in discussion.

Come learn, contemplate, cultivate & transform. Make a difference in your life, mind & world. Make it means something!
