●Nov 1, 8, 22; Dec 6, 13
Each class is self-contained. You are welcome to join any week.
In each of these 5 classes we will cover meditation techniques from the book ‘How to Solve Our Human Problems’ by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, contemporary Buddhist meditation master and author of 23 highly-acclaimed books.
We will practice guided meditations which function to
– improve our ability to relax more deeply and quickly
– improve our concentration and our ability to watch our thoughts peacefully and without judgement, transforming any negative thought patterns into constructive, positive thought patterns that lead to deep-seated happiness
– enable us to turn daily challenges at work and at home into opportunities for personal evolution, so we can experience a peaceful, relaxed confidence that is less vulnerable to changing circumstances and others’ perceptions of ourself
