This world needs more peace. We can all be a part of bringing this about by becoming a more peaceful person. When we bring about this change in ourselves we naturally bring more calm and kindness to everyone we meet and to every situation we find ourselves in. An essential part of being able to benefit others is becoming stronger ourselves and creating more balance in our life.
This Sunday morning meditation class will look at Buddha’s teachings on loving kindness and six famous practices that encapsulate a Bodhisattva’s way of life. Each week will include:
- guided breathing meditation
- a short teaching on how to access more inner calm and kindness
- a practice of some short chanted prayers in English called Prayers for World Peace
- a concluding contemplative time
Everyone is welcome.
September 3 - The power of a peaceful mind
September 10 - Seeing anger for what it is
September 17 - How does anger develop?
September 24 - Patience but not inactivity
