  • 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 loving kindness and compassion.  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.
