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 or benefit from our meditations.

Kadampa Buddhism (http://kadampa.org/buddhism/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!

In today’s world the focus is very much on ‘looking after number one’ and disregarding the needs and happiness of others; looking out for ourself is even seen as a virtue. However, from the point of view of enlightened beings this attitude keep us trapped in the cycle of unhappiness. This course will give us insight into this self perpetuating cycle and teach us to discover the attitude of cherishing others that will enable us to take a permanent vacation from the prison of self-concern.

Normally we try to find happiness and solutions to our problems by putting our energy into improving our external conditions. But this outward focus doesn’t deliver, and instead often leaves us vulnerable to disappointment, dissatisfaction, and disillusionment.

In these Friday night monthly classes using practical, reliable methods from Buddhist psychology we can learn to see things differently and through this develop inner peace, satisfaction and deeper meaning in our life.
