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. 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!

Livestream Thursday Morning Meditation

Online event

$10.00

Meditation is becoming increasingly recognized as an effective means to reduce stress and improve our quality of life, however it also has much deeper and far reaching benefits that have been understood by Buddhist practitioners for thousands of years. These classes follow a cycle of 21 profound objects of meditation that form the Buddhist path to ultimate happiness. Each week will explore a different meditation and show how adopting this outlook can lead to deeper and deeper levels of happiness. The teachings will be based on The New Meditation Handbook, and the format includes two guided meditations, a short talk introducing the object of contemplation and advice on how to carry the instruction into our daily life. This class also includes prayers from Prayers for Meditation to help prepare our mind and protect any realizations we have gained during our meditation. These classes are suitable for everyone from complete beginners to experienced meditators. Everyone welcome! NEW! Looking to connect with others? Check out our Gathering Space.
