Introduction to Buddhist Meditation

Nov 1 – Dec 13 | 12 noon-1.00pm

IN-PERSON

Buddhist meditation is widely known for its ability to help people remove their inner causes of suffering.  It is also about becoming happier and happier — discovering the deep peace, joy, and bliss we all have inside of us.

Join Gen Kelsang Zopa for a relaxing  guided meditation and talk in which he will explain how to use the power of meditation to tap into this potential for lasting happiness.  We can learn to pacify distraction, negative thoughts, and unhappiness, and thereby come to discover an authentic experience of peace.
