Prayers for World Peace

with Kadampa Buddhist Teachers

Kathleen Thurston, Julia Morales and Jonathan Walther
Join us on Sundays and feel empowered to change yourself and change the world. These classes include 2 guided meditations, and a short teaching  (from the Mirror of Dharma with Additions, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s most recent book), and beautiful chanted prayers in English. The focus is on the stages of the Kadampa Buddhist spiritual path (or Lamrim), which also offers solutions to problems in daily life, authentic optimism and the development of altruistic love and compassion.

On the second Sunday of every month, join us for a  free light brunch from 11:00-11:30am.

Everyone is welcome. Class is by donation
