INTRODUCTION TO BUDDHIST MEDITATION

A Buddhist philosophical, psychological and meditative approach to expanding your awareness. With commentary from How to Transform Your Life

Sometimes we think too small.

It’s easy to get stuck in a small-minded approach to life.

This course will provide the Buddhist philosophical, psychological and meditative approach to expanding your awareness. 

In this course we will explore:

  • The nature of consciousness
  • Our highest potential 
  • The various realms of existence
  • Past & future lives 
  • Karma
  • What it means to be a Bodhisattva

This is a special opportunity to learn a different way of thinking that is not ordinary, that comes from the omniscient wisdom of Buddha, and that can radically shift your view of yourself, your life, and your world for the better. Everyone is welcome.
