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

CURRENT SERIES: LETTING GO OF STRESS & NEGATIVITY

What is meditation really? What are the results? What do we meditate on? How do we do it? If we train in meditation systematically, eventually we will be able to eradicate from our mind the negative thoughts, called delusions, that are the causes of all our problems and suffering. In this way, we will come to experience a permanent inner peace, known as “liberation” or “nirvana”. Then, day and night we will experience only peace and happiness.


Each week learn a new meditation that will lead you towards permanent peace and happiness. Learn step by step methods for successful meditation by with Gen Chogyop.

 

Although presented in a series, each class is self-contained. Perfect for beginners and more experienced meditators. Everyone is welcome.

In person, livestream via ZOOM & on demand for one week
