Through meditation we can access a sense of calm and purpose that can give us more ease and enjoyment throughout the day. The purpose of meditation is to increase our capacity to help others — so taking the time to meditate is not selfish.
The New Meditation Handbook is a practical guide to meditation. It teaches us how to make both ourself and others happy. Each week in this fall series, Gen Khedrub will guide us through one of the meditation practices from this book, known as the Stages of the Path or Lamrim.
This is perfect class for learning the the basics of meditation and Buddha’s teachings and building a regular personal practice.
