Kadampa Meditation Center logo

Each week, our class includes 20 minutes of guided relaxation meditation, a brief teaching, time for discussion, and a concluding meditation. The teaching portion includes practical, actionable wisdom from the Buddhist tradition that we can use to improve the quality of our daily life. These teachings are suitable for everyone, not just people who consider themselves Buddhists.

Every class is offered on a drop-in basis; you do not need to attend each class in a series. We ask for a contribution of $12, or $6 if you consider yourself a senior, student, or unemployed.

 

September – Developing the Wisdom to Stay Patient:

With the wisdom of patience, we can transform our problems and hardship into opportunities for spiritual growth. In this series we will look at techniques taught by Buddha to always remain at peaceful when meeting adversities.
September 9: Anger Harms us All
September 16: Separating Anger from the Person
September 23: Learning to Forgive ourself and others

October – Healing the Past:

We often have trouble feeling like we can heal from painful events in our past and this affects the way we respond to our current life situations. We blame situations, ourselves or others and remain trapped in a state of anger and hurt. Through training in mindfulness and meditation we can illuminate the real source of pain and difficulty within our minds and finally heal it completely, leaving us with a tremendous feeling of relief and joy.
October 21: How our worldly interests cause anger
October 28: How our words cause anger

November – Transforming Adverse Conditions:

In this series we will look at the different states of mind we develop in dependence upon our anger. We can find solutions to uproot our anger once and for all and thus leaving our mind peaceful and calm.

November 4: How our attachment causes anger
November 11: How our jealousy causes anger
November 18: How our pride causes anger

November 25: The value of patience
