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.

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!

Finding Fearlessness

Saratoga Senior Center

March Series: Dealing with Difficult Emotions
Tuesdays · 7-8:30pm with Charlie Stuart
You do not have to be controlled by emotions like craving, anger, and jealousy! Our inner world can be confusing and often we don’t know why we feel the way we do. Fortunately, through special meditations on understanding our own mind, we can recognize, reduce and completely let go of these painful mental habits. By doing this, we are being incredibly kind to ourselves and to others. Specifically, this course will help you:

  • Experience the freedom of acknowledging you can change
  • Understand where mental pain and unhappiness come from
  • Learn simple methods for reducing and uprooting unhelpful thought patterns
