This meditation workshop will help you empower your practice and remove obstacles in meditation by discovering the “five forces.” Sometimes referred to as the essence of Buddha’s teachings, these forces are practical keys that unlock your potential for successful practice and allow you to transform all your daily activities into spiritual growth.
With these tools you can find a more mature, long term and enjoyable approach to your practice of meditation and of Buddha’s teachings. Discover for yourself how this indispensable ancient wisdom can empower and sustain a modern day practitioner.
No previous experience is necessary. No special clothing is required. Just show up - online or in-person.
Note: This class will be delivered in-person and online via a Zoom webinar. Our new location is 2298 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge, just a few blocks from the Davis Square T stop. After registering you will receive instructions on how to watch the sessions. This event will have a replay option of 48 so you can register now and watch later.
