Let Go of the Past

Saturday, October 29  |  10am-1PM

Buddhist meditation workshop
with Gen Kelsang Rigpa

This course is for you if you answer yes to any of these questions: 
  • Are you sometimes stuck in the past?
  • Does your past weigh you down?
  • Would you like to let go of your past?
  • Do you want a fresh start in life?
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.

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?
