Meditations for our Times

Sundays, 10:00-11:00 am

Gen Kelsang Suma will teach and guide us in a series of meditations that can be practiced by anyone. These meditations can help us improve our inner peace and mental clarity, and deepen our love and compassion for others. We will conclude with special prayers. Prayers are neither small nor passive actions, but a healing force in our shared world.

The Medicine of Mindfulness

Healing the Heart in a Troubled World

Wednesdays, 10:00-11:00 am

For centuries, Buddhist practitioners have regarded mindfulness training and meditation as being foundational to a happy and fulfilling life. These are skills we need to cultivate intentionally, and then practice not simply on the cushion, but routinely as we go about our daily life.

Living with Gratitude: A Day Retreat

with Gen Suma

Saturday, August 22

It’s a fact!  Grateful people are happy people!  Yet sometimes we’re so fixated on what we don’t have that we forget to appreciate the things we do have, and to recognize how much others contribute to our lives every day and in every way.

Discover for yourself the uplifting experience and positive energy that comes from meditating on gratitude. Through simple meditations we can reflect on the truth of our situation, take time to appreciate the life we have, and develop a strong desire to put it to the best use possible.

Live-stream retreat

Chanted Prayers

“In general, prayers made by an assembly of many practitioners are very powerful and cannot be compared to the prayers of one or two people. The scriptures give the analogy of a broom. If we try to clean a floor with a few bristles we shall make little progress, but if we gather many bristles to make a broom we shall be successful.”  Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
