MEDITATION & MODERN BUDDHISM

Buddha explained how the mind works with astounding clarity, and taught specifically how to generate the positive, or virtuous, mental habits that give rise to the joy, confidence, contentment and fulfillment we all seek. This course is an excellent introduction to Buddhist psychology and meditation, and is also a perfect opportunity to explore the masterful text How to Understand the Mind written by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

This class is designed to help those looking for Buddhist wisdom to help with stress relief and relaxation, as well as those interested in exploring the nature of the mind, and pursuing the Buddhist path. It is suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners alike.

A typical class consists of a guided relaxation meditation, a teaching based on the meditation topic, and a final contemplative meditation. Although classes are given in a series, they can be taken individually, as each class topic is self-contained.

Classes last approximately 1.5 hours. There is no physical exercise, yoga, or stretching involved.

Everyone is welcome, regardless of belief; you do not need to be Buddhist to attend. No pre-registration necessary.
