Meditations on the Path to Bliss

We will practice a variety of different meditation techniques such as focusing on the breath and loving kindness. We will learn how to gain control of our minds, to break negative thought patterns by developing mindfulness. To develop wisdom, we will focus on the Stages on the Path to Enlightenment (Lam Rim) teachings based on His Holiness the Dalai Lama's book Path to Bliss and other writings. To accumulate merit, we will do a variety of prayers and practices such as sutra readings, or a Medicine Buddha puja.

10:00 - 11:00 am -- Introduction to meditation (to develop concentration)
11:00 am - 12:00 pm -- Discussion and meditation on the Stages on the Path to Enlightenment (to develop wisdom)
12:00 - 1:00 pm -- Prayers (to accumulate merit)

These monthly Saturday morning sessions are open to everyone who is interested in Buddhism, there are no pre-requisites. Newcomers are welcome to attend. Participants can choose to attend part of the session according to their interests. There will be a short break between sessions.

Suggested donation: Members $25, Non-members ($30), no one will be turned away due to lack of funds
