  • Meditations for a Happy and Meaningful Life

    Kadampa Buddhism is a type of Buddhism that emphasizes the practical integration of Buddha’s teachings into our daily life by using the presentation of meditation known as “Lamrim”, or “Stages of the Path to Enlightenment.”. 

    We are currently focusing on meditations that help us to develop a deep experience of our own situation – why we experience suffering and problems and how to create real happiness from within.  These are practical meditations to help us keep a peaceful mind throughout our day and with everyone we meet.

    In each class Susan will give commentary to ‘The New Meditation Handbook’ explaining the purpose of each meditation, how to engage in this meditation, and how to integrate this meditation into our daily activities.

    This gives us a deeper understanding of the free guided meditations that are available Monday to Friday mornings from 8-9am.  Click here to join these meditations.

    Overcoming anger in 4 easy steps

    In situations of conflict, we tend to become angry easily. We even think anger will help us ‘win’ our battles, and we rely on it as if it were our trusted friend. The mind of anger, however, leaves a trail of broken relationships, lost opportunities, and painful feelings in its wake. These classes offer skillful techniques to remain balanced, flexible and peaceful in the midst of difficult situations and conflicts, thereby overcoming our real enemy, the painful mind of anger itself.

    July 6 – Preventing anger through love and patience
