Without inner peace outer peace is impossible - Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Take an inner journey to peace and happiness while creating a better world. With teachings and meditations from Geshe Kelsang’s Gyatso’s highly respected books on Buddhist meditation, we learn how to live the Buddhist way of life in modern life.

Gen Kelsang Rinzin, Buddhist monk, Resident Teacher

Sunday morning meditation class takes place every week and is taught by Gen Rinzin, Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Center Washington.

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!

Classes include guided relaxation meditation, instruction on how to keep a peaceful mind, and time for Q&A.

What can we do when things go wrong? When loved ones are hurting, or when we're anxious about our health or finances? At these times, we need an inner resilience that can rebound from a hard knock, a buoyancy that stays afloat in the swamping storm.

Buddha's teachings on refuge and transforming adversity are what we need. We may not be able to avoid troubles, but can certainly transform them in ways to keep our cool, keep our peace of mind, and be able to respond in the most beneficial ways. By applying these teachings, challenging circumstances actually aid our inner spiritual growth, and finally help us attain the state of enlightenment. Then we will no long have any problems at all.
