Buddha Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism, appeared in this world in 624BC, and gave teachings, known as Dharma, to help relieve the mental pain of living beings. This empowerment will open the door to the profound methods of inner transformation that Buddha taught and will allow us to receive his inspiring blessings. The empowerment will be granted by Kadampa Buddhist nun, Gen Kelsang Chogden. The program is suitable for everyone and will also include guided meditations and teachings on how to live as a Modern Buddhist. Learn methods that combine Buddha’s ancient wisdom with our contemporary and busy world so we can find practical solutions to our everyday problems.
This class will give an introduction to meditation, what meditation is and how to meditate, for anyone who wants to begin a meditation. It is also a chance for more experienced meditators to practice in a group setting and ask questions to deepen their practice. Everyone is welcome!
