Seize the Day! A Retreat on How to Make the Most of Life – Saturday, March 5 10:30am to 3:45pm

The very first meditation in the Buddhist spiritual path is the meditation known as Precious Human Life. This meditation is essentially the starter engine of our spiritual life, in which we focus on the incredible potential within our mind, and the good conditions within our life that will enable us to actualize our potential. Combined with the second meditation on Death and Impermanence we will find ourself empowered with joy and a sense of purpose so that we truly seize the day.

During this three session day retreat Gen Norden will take us into the heart of these practices. At the end of the last session there will be an opportunity for Q&A.

Everyone is welcome.

In person or online. This event will be delivered in-person and online via a Zoom webinar. Kadampa Meditation Center Boston is located at 2298 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge, just a few blocks from the Davis Square T stop.

Session times:
2:30-3:45pm (includes Q&A)
