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!
Making a Meditation Habit Tuesdays · 7-8:30pm with Charlie Stuart January 18 Developing Concentration
It’s easy to start a new practice and then abandon it for something else. Creating a meditation habit that lasts is an art. You can start the new year right by learning essential techniques for creating a joyful but disciplined meditation practice that will support and sustain you for a lifetime. We will look at the essentials of how to meditate and how to create a consistent, joyful routine. There will be plenty of time for questions and a discussion of how we can refine our practice going forward.
With Evelyn Williams, in this half-day course, we will get to fine-tune our intentions for the new year to create the positive change we’re looking for. When we align our intentions and actions with a clear sense of our potential, amazing accomplishments will arise. The power of intention can take us to wonderful experiences or terrible ones. Our intentions have the power to create our own enlightenment or our own problems. Through the teachings given in this workshop, we learn how to correctly set our motivation so that we live with purpose and meaning. Everyone welcome. See www.kadampanewyork.org classes for more.
