Meditation connects us to our mind’s extraordinary potential for peace, happiness, love and wisdom. This potential is our Buddha nature, our potential for enlightenment. Meditation puts us in touch with this possibility. We recognize enlightenment not as an abstraction, but as something real that we can tap into in our daily life. In so doing, we open ourselves up to becoming a Bodhisattva, a person who identifies with his or her full potential and who sets about to actualize it, motivated by love and compassion for others in the world.
Every class will include two guided meditations, a talk, and a chance to ask questions and discuss. Everyone is welcome to these drop-in classes, regardless of your experience with meditation or Buddhism. We offer ancient wisdom for modern people with modern challenges.
