Start Meditating: It’s a New Year

Religious, Class/Workshop

Meditation is increasingly popular and the benefits are well-known. But, getting started isn’t as easy as watching a YouTube video. Our ability to meditate is built upon experience and those experiences have more power when shared directly from one meditator to another. In this class, we will learn from our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Wangpo, who has been studying Buddhist meditation for over 20 years. He will be providing some practical tips about meditation to help us get started and improve our meditation practice.

Tackling Depression

Religious, Health & Wellness/Nutrition

Depression affects everyone. For some people, sometimes, depression is a major event and then there are instances that are noticeable and yet feel controllable. There is no shame in experiencing feelings of sadness, depression, or being blue. Regardless of the scope of our depressed feelings, we always desire a solution to sadness. We all want to stop feeling down. If you are familiar with these experiences, consider learning how meditation and Buddha’s teachings can help you take your mind away from depressed feelings and into better, more comfortable spaces. This workshop will look at a few of Buddha’s powerful techniques for opening and illuminating the heart to bring joy and connectedness. With good perspectives and spiritual power, we can definitely change our mind.
