Just Breathe: A mini-retreat for everyone – Saturday, January 7 from 10:00am to 12:30pm


Due to unforeseen circumstances this workshop is cancelled.


Be kind to yourself by taking care of your mind. In this mini-retreat, you will learn and practice simple meditations that allow you to develop and maintain a calm, clear mind. This clarity of mind naturally leads to an inner experience of peace and well-being. When our mind is peaceful, we can approach all situations with a more confident, positive and relaxed attitude. 

Meditations will be guided and light refreshments will be available during the break. This retreat is perfect for beginners and experienced meditators. Everyone is welcome.

Location: This event will be held at Kadampa Meditation Center Boston, located at 2298 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge, just a few blocks from the Davis Square T stop. There is free parking available, please email us at education@meditationinboston.org

Susan Nelson enjoys finding ways to integrate Buddha’s teachings into her various roles as attorney, mother, partner, sister, teacher, daughter, and friend.  Susan started attending Kadampa Meditation Center South Carolina in 2009, the same year she passed the Bar exam.  She has employed meditation techniques over the past dozen years to help de-stress and lighten the intensity of her legal career.  Susan now studies on the Foundation Program at Kadampa Meditation Boston, exuding supreme calm and clarity, and we are delighted to have her teaching this event.

Joe Kovaz also began studying and practicing Dharma at Kadampa Meditation Center South Carolina in 2009. After several years of study and practice Joe began teaching meditation classes.  Joe especially cherishes the opportunity to teach meditation classes to beginners and seeks ways to make his classes very practical and meaningful for participants. Joe is a lively member of the Teacher Training Program at Kadampa Meditation Center Boston and brings great joy to his teachings.
