A series of classes based on Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book, How to Transform Your Life.

Each class consists of guided meditations and clear explanations, as well as an opportunity to ask questions.
New Series: Meditation on Emptiness
The Wisdom that Heals, Liberates and Enlightens
Of all Buddha’s teachings, none are more far-reaching and transformative than the teachings on emptiness, the true nature of reality. It is through our understanding of emptiness – in particular, the freedom that we experience as a result – that we can then come to solve all our problems and be of maximum benefit to others.
“With emptiness, anything is possible.”
In this series of talks and guided meditations we will explore this liberating wisdom. Each session will also include discussion and an opportunity to ask questions.
