April 12 – Awakening the Heart

This class is designed especially for beginners. In this class you will learn meditation and the Buddhist approach to training the mind. Applying these methods in your everyday life will lead to happiness and a sense of purpose and harmony in your relationships.

Each Wednesday class will consist of guided meditations and clear explanations, as well as an opportunity to ask questions. Everyone welcome!

 

April 19 – How to Meditate

In this class you will learn the basics from why we would want to meditate to how to do it. How do we set up our meditation space? How long do we meditate? What do we focus on? What are some techniques to help us overcome distractions? The class will include some guided meditations and provide plenty of time for questions.

 

Meditation and Freedom from Painful Emotions

Imagine a life completely free from anger, jealousy, heartache, dread, loneliness and all the other painful states of mind that cause us so much suffering. We often feel as if it isn’t possible to become free from these painful emotions. But it is definitely possible. Why? Because they are all states of mind, and Buddhist meditation gives us the tools to change our mind.

In this series, we will dedicate each  week to going after a specific one of these toxic minds – called “delusions” – discovering why it arises and how through our meditation practice we can completely eliminate it from our mind.  These practical methods will allow us to experience a deep and satisfying emotional freedom, and give us the skill to be the person we wish to be, positive, joyful, confident and loving.
