Prayers for World Peace

[/md_heading][md_text css_animation_delay=”0″]

Our Sunday drop-in meditation classes include guided meditations, short prayers dedicated to world peace, and a teaching on a Buddhist topic. In these classes, we can learn and practice essential meditation techniques, reduce stress, and develop lasting happiness. In so doing, we can find real inner peace within our own hearts and in this way contribute to world peace.

See below for class schedule.

Please note:  NEW! We are happy to announce the following program changes starting in September.  The Sunday classes will changed to be a General Program drop-in class format.  Prayers for World Peace will be switched to Mondays, 10-11am.  See below for details.

MEDITATIONS FOR MODERN LIVING
Sundays, 11:00-am-12:15pm
with Kadampa Buddhist Teachers
Kathleen Thurston, Julia Morales and Jonathan Walther
Everybody needs to be good-natured with a good heart, because in this way we can solve our own problems, learn to help others, and we can make our human life meaningful.
Our Sunday drop-in meditation classes include guided meditations and a teaching on a Buddhist topic based on “How to Transform Your Life” by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. In these classes, we can learn and practice essential meditation techniques, reduce stress, and gradually learn how to reduce our own and others suffering.
$12.
