Meditation Class with Prayers for World Peace
Location: Samudrabadra Kadampa Buddhist Center

Note: We also offer a Meditation Class for Kids at the same time as this class, on the First Sunday of each month.
Everyone wants a happy mind, with less worry and conflict, and more love and joy. To make that happen we need to actively train our minds. Applying the practice of meditation along with Buddha’s insights into the mind gives us the tools to actually begin to bring about the changes we long for.
These weekly classes include guided meditations & teachings that are suitable for both beginners and more advanced meditation practitioners. The classes are given as a series, but can also be taken individually.
Please feel free to drop in on a class-by-class basis. Classes are held every week unless otherwise stated.
No special clothing is required. No pre-registration required. Everyone welcome!
