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, guided 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. As Buddhists, we are also interested in Buddha's teachings pertaining to liberation and full enlightenment. The teachings cover the full range of interest, from simply wishing to live a happier life here and now, to attaining the ultimate meaning and goal of human life - enlightenment. There will 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. Kadam Buddhism stresses a spiritual path of individual transformation and to look within ourselves for the inner peace and happiness we seek. Everyone is welcome!
Please ask us about our study program, the Foundation Program (FP), if you are interested in getting more deeply into understanding Buddhist teachings and practicing the Buddhist path in a more committed way.
This group is organized by Atisha Kadampa Buddhist Center( http://www.meditationinrhodeisland.org ) and Serlingpa Meditation Center ( http://www.meditationinmass.org )
