The Monday Evening Meditation Class takes place every week and is taught by Gen Rinzin, Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Center Washington. This introduction to meditation and Buddhist psychology covers a variety of topics including how to overcome anger and develop patience, how to increase love and compassion, and how to apply Buddha’s wisdom teachings to daily life.
Although the class topics generally follow a series format, each is self-contained and you can benefit from attending any class. Feel free to drop into any class that fits your schedule. While meditation is something we can do on our own, it is wonderful to receive teachings and guidance from a supportive community!
Exploring Consciousness: Positive Habits of a Healthy Mind
Mondays, 7:00 - 8:15pm
March 6 to April 10
In our materially focused world where science and technology dominate our lives we have made remarkable external progress, but we still lack a clear, comprehensive, and practical understanding of our mind. By understanding the inner science of the mind we can discover which thoughts and states of mind lead to happiness and which do not. With this knowledge we can learn positive habits of happiness and practice them in everyday life.
Teachings based on the book How to Understand the Mind, by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
