CREATE MENTAL SPACE

“By training in meditation, we create an inner space and clarity that enables us to control our mind regardless of the external circumstance. Gradually we develop mental equilibrium, a balanced mind that is happy all the time.”


- Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Daily morning meditations offer an opportunity to be guided by experienced meditators in Buddha’s Lamrim (Stages of the Path to Enlightenment) teachings. Guided meditation is an excellent way to learn meditation and prepares students for personal practice. It is also a perfect way for experienced meditators to let go and relax into deeper levels of concentration. Everyone is welcome, no experience necessary.
