Awakening the Heart
Harmonious Relationships

Saturday, November 18  |  10am-1PM

with Kadam Kyle Davis, Resident Teacher from Vajradhara KMC in Brooklyn

This meditation workshop is for you if you want to:

  1. Take time to turn inwards
  2. Develop a positive mind for the holidays
  3. Learn methods to love others
  4. Gain experience of meditation
  5. Meet kind-hearted people

The practices of training the mind and the meditations presented within Buddhism are universally applicable and offer excellent methods for transforming our relationships with family, friends, partners, work colleagues and beyond. Relationships can provide meaning and joy to our life, but they can also give rise to friction, insecurity, resentment and sadness.

During this course we will explore the methods of Buddhist psychology and meditative practice for reframing relationships, learning to cultivate positive and harmonious relationships that give purpose and happiness to our lives.

About Our Community

Attending class, chatting in the courtyard or even trying a volunteer role are great ways to experience the benefits of a service oriented community.

Community is important to us. The way of being at the Center exemplifies how Kadampa Buddhist practices and modern life go hand in hand. We integrate the teachings we receive into the activities and dialogue that make up our Center life. It feels simple, harmonious and easy to enjoy your inner and outer environment.

Our Founder and Spiritual Teacher Geshe Kelsang Gyatso often says, "everyone welcome!" Yes, everyone is welcome to join the Center, its classes, events and practices regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender and so on. We know that everyone benefits from Buddha's teachings and we're delighted to have our doors open to help make that happen.

Did you know that all our classes and events are run by a volunteer team?
