Learn how to let go of the past through the wisdom of Buddhist psychology and meditation. In reality we are not fixed, or defined by our past traumatic experiences, or present limiting beliefs; we all have an extraordinary potential for positive change and good qualities. Through cultivating that potential we can redirect our lives, free of the past, and focus on creating the person we wish to be from moment to moment.
Everyone is welcome to attend the classes in this series. No experience necessary.
Remaining topics in this series:
October 2 The Wisdom of Impermanence

October 30 Transform through Buddha’s Blessings
General Program (GP) classes are suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. The classes are designed to help those looking for Buddhist wisdom to help with stress relief and relaxation, as well as those interested in exploring the nature of the mind, and pursuing the Buddhist path.
Classes explore the basic framework of Buddhist teachings and meditation and explain how to use Buddha’s advice in our daily lives to solve our problems. All General Program classes are based on commentaries by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
A typical class consists of a guided relaxation meditation, a teaching based on the meditation topic, and final contemplative meditation. Although classes are given in a series around one specific theme, they are drop-in in nature and can be taken individually, as each class topic is self-contained.
GP classes last approximately 1.5 hours. Chairs and cushions are provided by the Center. No special clothing is required, and there is no physical exercise, yoga, or stretching involved.
Everyone is welcome, regardless of belief; you do not need to be Buddhist to attend.
