About Meditation

You don’t have to be a Buddhist to learn Buddhist meditation and find peace, positivity and joy in your life, whatever circumstances you find yourself in. Meditation means familiarizing ourself with positive and happy ways of thinking and overcoming negative habits of mind that cause unhappiness. Buddhist meditation is open to everybody who wants to learn it; it doesn’t belong to Buddhists. It resonates with a lot of people these days because it provides very practical methods for finding peace, happiness and meaning in the midst of busy modern daily life. It also provides practical and effective ways of helping others and dealing with many of the problems in the world today.

Freedom From People Pleasing: Half-Day Course

Saturday, October 7 | 10:30am - 1:00pm

Being a kind and considerate person doesn’t require us to worry about what others think about us. In fact, this concern makes us feel insecure and anxious, and leads to an inauthentic life. In this course, we learn how to free ourselves from our preoccupation with what others are thinking and our fears of criticism. This new freedom will improve our relationships with ourselves and others.

Learning to be your own Karma Doctor: Mini-Course

Saturday, October 28 | 10:00am - 11:30am

Karma is one of those subjects that we have all heard about but not quite sure why we should care about it or how it influences our daily life. Understanding karma - the law of cause and effect - and living in accordance with what we’ve uncovered is actually a powerful diagnostic tool to begin to understand and remedy our daily problems and at the same time chart a positive course for our life.

Halloween Meditation on Death

Tuesday, October 31 | 7-8pm

While it might sound scary to meditate on death according to Buddhist wisdom it is one of the most freeing and liberating contemplations we can engage in. We may not be happy to hear about our death, but meditating on our death and developing a deep mortality awareness will bring so much meaning to our life.
