What we're about

Meet like-minded people interested in meditation in the Denver area! 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. Everyone is welcome

Life and Death: An Indispensable Buddhist Perspective - Live Streaming

Online only! Our physical location is closed but you find out more about our Wednesday live stream classes here: https://meditationincolorado.org/wednesdaydropin DROP-IN MEDITATION CLASSES WITH KADAM LUCY JAMES In this series, we will focus on the true meaning of life, how to accept death without fear, and how to help others who are dying and who have died. If we wish to die well, we must first learn how to live well. Wishing for a peaceful death, we must cultivate peace in our minds and in our way of life. As Geshe Kelsang Gyatso says in Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully, on which this series is based: “There is nothing more precious than our human life. Having been born as a human being we have immense freedom to accomplish almost anything we want. With so much freedom, we need to ask ourself what is the most meaningful way to use our life. What will make us truly happy? What will benefit others most? And when this life is over, what will help us then?” Living with an awareness of death inspires us to a more meaningful and joyful life. Yet despite being a natural and inevitable part of our existence, we sometimes find it difficult to accept that we and everyone we know is going to die — it is pretty much a taboo subject in our modern society. Buddhists however are fine thinking about it — which is a real freedom. If we understand what happens when we die and how to prepare for a really good death, when death arrives we will know how to journey to our next life in a blissful, positive way. This knowledge is utterly indispensable! It will also enable us to bring great benefit and peace to our friends and family, including our pets, when they are dying. Helping others die peacefully is one of the kindest things we can ever do for them. These are Buddha’s teachings but you don’t have to be a Buddhist to benefit from them, simply an interested living being. Everyone is welcome!
