The Buddhist Way of Loving Kindness: Wednesday evenings from 6:15pm-7:30pm in Portland with Clare Morin

We are all looking for lasting happiness and we want to be free from problems and suffering permanently. These wishes can be fulfilled through understanding and practicing loving kindness.

With peace and love in our hearts, our relationships become more rewarding and long-lasting and we build the foundation for many good qualities to grow such as compassion, acceptance, empathy and patience.

This meditation class will introduce the fundamentals of meditation and explore a series of amazing contemplations that Buddha taught to access our mind of loving kindness. These help us overcome the various ways of thinking that keep us stuck.

About the teacher: Clare Morin has been practicing Kadampa Buddhism since the early 2000s, when she  began to study meditation at the Kadampa Meditation Center Hong Kong. She found tremendous value in learning about meditation and using these practical teachings to solve the problems of daily life. Her studies on this path have continued in-depth, and when she moved to Maine in 2009 with her Mainer husband, she was lucky to be asked to start teaching a weekly branch class in Portland.
