Fall Series information

 

“When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the mind. If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive or peaceful mind, they would not be problems for us; indeed, we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development. Problems arise only if we respond to difficulties with a negative state of mind. Therefore, if we want to be happy all the time and free from problems, we must develop and maintain a peaceful mind. Sufferings, problems, worries, unhappiness and pain all exist within our mind; they are all unpleasant feelings, which are part of the mind. Through controlling and purifying our mind we can stop them once and for all.” — Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Class Description

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.
