The Healing Power of Meditation
Buddha taught a special healing meditation, known as taking and giving. This profound meditation heals our own heart through greatly improving our love and compassion. It has been known to heal physical diseases and to enable us to help others. In this series, based on Geshe Kelsang Gyasto’s groundbreaking book, Modern Buddhism, we will explore this astounding practice and learn how to integrate it into our daily life. In particular we will learn how emphasizing this practice will enable us to actualize our potential to become the most beneficial being we can be.

Freedom from Painful Emotions
According to Buddha our suffering comes about due to the uncontrolled and painful states of mind, known as the delusions. During the New Year, we will be focusing on Buddha’s illuminating teachings on these painful minds and how to overcome them. In each session we will focus on how to deal with a particular delusion, learning practical methods to reduce its hold on us and in this way allowing us to experience a deep and satisfying emotional freedom. As our delusions diminish we draw closer to the person we wish to be, a joyful, confident and loving person.
