“The real source of happiness is inner peace.  If our mind is peaceful, we will be happy all the time, regardless of external conditions, but if it is disturbed or troubled in any way, we will never be happy, no matter how good our external conditions may be.  External conditions can only make us happy if our mind is peaceful.  We can understand this through our own experience.  For instance, even if we are in the most beautiful surroundings and have everything we need, the moment we get angry any happiness we may have disappears.  This is because anger has destroyed our inner peace.” — Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche


General Program Format

Each class is two hours long and broken down into several sections. We begin with an introduction on the topic to be covered. Then we still our minds with a guided 10 minute breathing meditation. This is followed by a 50 minute commentary on the actual meditation practice, then 15 minute guided meditation on the topic, a 15 minute intra-class discussion follows and then we close with 15 minutes for questions and answers.

These classes are suitable for both beginners and more advanced practitioners. Each class is self-contained and can be enjoyed on a drop-in basis. No pre-registration is necessary.  $12 per class, no one is turned away.
