The Joy of Letting Go – Saturday, December 18 from 10am to 12:30pm
Within Buddha’s teachings you can find many methods for letting go of the past and finding joy in daily life. In fact we could say that the entirety of Buddhist path to enlightenment has to go with letting go.
This uplifting workshop with Gen Khedrub is specifically designed to explore how to let go of old habits and fears that you might face during the holiday season, so that you can experience this holiday season with a more relaxed and joyful heart.
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. Kadampa Meditation Center Boston is located at 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 online. This event will have a replay option of 48 so you can register now and watch later.
