Thursdays 6:30pm – 8:00pm
with Kadampa Buddhist Teacher Andy Peters
The purpose of these classes is to help people gain personal experience of inner peace through the practice of meditation, to overcome their daily problems, and to find real happiness in their hearts so they can be of benefit to those around them. The classes are suitable for people with entry level experience.
August 10th ~ Inner Peace
August 17th ~ Pure Light
August 24th ~ Inspiration
These three simple guided meditations are forms of breathing meditation that help to calm the mind, reduce stress, and give rise to an experience of inner peace and well-being. The first is a basic breathing meditation that helps to disengage the mind from the busyness of everyday life and create a special feeling of inner peace. The second combines mindfulness of the breath with visualization, or creative imagination, and leads to a deep feeling of inner calm and purity. The third is a special breathing meditation that combines mindfulness of the breath with the recitation of mantra. All these meditations can be practiced by anyone.
