The Medicine of Mindfulness:

Healing the heart in a troubled and divided world

with Gen Kelsang Suma

Many people are interested in mindfulness and meditation, but what exactly is mindfulness? How do we do it, and how does it help us in our daily life?

Mindfulness training and meditation have been understood by Buddhist practitioners for centuries to be key to a happy and fulfilling life. They are skills cultivated not merely in the formal setting, but as a regular part of a practitioner’s everyday life.

The practice of mindfulness is about more than just “being in the moment”. Originally taught by Buddha, it is a training that prompts us to always remember – and thus constantly practice – beneficial ways of thinking and acting that will protect us from problems, and bring ever more happiness into our lives.

Why a Spiritual Path? Meditations on the Four Noble Truths

with Kelsang Chopel
Presented by Buddha in his first teaching after enlightenment, the Four Noble Truths diagnose the deeper spiritual problem of our life and propose a reliable path to peace, mental freedom and the fulfillment of our highest potential.
In these sessions, based on insights from the Four Noble Truths, we will try to develop not only a clear appreciation of the benefits of following a spiritual path, but a determination to develop a sustainable spiritual practice of our own.
These are drop-in classes.  Although part of a series, each class is self-contained and consists of guided meditation, a teaching and time for questions and discussion.
Everyone is welcome.
