New  Series: Buddhist Psychology for Modern Living 

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.

These drop-in classes explore meditation and modern Buddhist practices for improving our happiness, relationships, and ability to transform problems into opportunities. The classes are suitable for everyone and consist of guided meditations, teaching and discussion. Each class is self-contained, so drop in anytime. There is no need to pre-register or bring anything. Everyone is welcome!
