  • Introduction to Kadampa Meditation

    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.”. In these classes we will explore some of the fundamentals of this powerful and systematic approach to meditation. We will also learn how to begin and sustain a successful daily meditation practice with time for Q & A to help you feel confident that you can begin to meditate on your own right away.

    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.
