meditation classes and workshops for all levels.

Ongoing Sundays, 10:30 – 11:45am | In-Person OR Online

Although meditation has countless benefits, from improving physical health to reducing anger, the main function of meditation is to make the mind calm and peaceful. With a calm, clear mind, we then begin to recognize and finally realize the incredible capacity of our mind to experience love, joy, compassion and much more.

Meditation, though, is much more than simply sitting in a special posture with our eyes closed. In order for our meditations to be successful and joyful, we need some special conditions or practices that will support and nurture the limitless potential of our mind.

In this series, we will learn what these practices are and how to apply them both in our sitting meditation and in our daily life situations.

This series is perfect for beginners and advanced meditators alike. Although it is beneficial to attend the whole series, you can still gain great benefit from dropping in to any one class.

Classes will include guided meditations and advice from Buddha’s teachings.
Everyone is welcome.

For our meditations to be transformative, our heart needs to be touched. Learning how to reflect deeply on truths such as impermanence, the power of love and compassion and the way things really are will cause us to really change from within and will transform our daily actions and intentions into meaningful ones.

In this series, we will learn how to meditate on a special presentation of meditation objects that will lead us to developing our full potential and that will make our life peaceful and meaningful.

In this series, we will be using The Mirror of Dharma with Additions by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

Held Online via Livestream.

Compassion is a powerful mind that is based on cherishing love that wishes for someone to be free from suffering. This mind is the fuel for lasting happiness for both ourselves and others. Why is this state of mind so important for the wellbeing of ourself and others? And how can we increase our compassion so that it extends beyond just a few and grows into universal compassion, which will cause us to strive to ripen the limitless potential of our mind?

Buddha taught that we all have a compassionate nature and the ability to deepen our compassion through meditating on logical reasons and the truth of wisdom. In this lecture learn the steps for growing our compassion, an essential ingredient for our own happiness and for gaining the means to protect others.
