Guided meditations and teachings with modern Buddhist teacher Star Sandow

Through meditation on emptiness we can learn to let go of all the usual worries, anxieties and fears that prevent us from experiencing true inner peace and happiness.

Finding Spiritual Protection: Meditations on Refuge
Guided meditations and teachings with modern Buddhist teacher Star Sandow
Thursdays, 7:00-8:15pm

In these turbulent times we need special practical methods for keeping a positive mind and transforming our adversities. Buddha taught that through seeking refuge and protection in the “Three Jewels” – Buddha, Dharma (his teachings), and Sangha (the spiritual community), we can heal our mind of feelings of unhappiness, find permanent solutions to our daily problems, and develop the positive qualities we need to truly benefit others. In these classes we will explore the practical meaning and benefits of going for refuge.

August 4 – The Power of Going for Refuge: Introduction to Buddhist Refuge
August 11 – How to Go for Refuge: Blessings, Practice and Support


Meditations for a Clear Mind
Guided meditations and teachings with modern Buddhist monk Gen Kelsang Tashi
Thursdays, 7:00-8:15pm

Learn to experience mental clarity and inner peace by meditating on the mind itself. The first meditation lays the foundation for meditating on the mind by helping to temporarily overcome physical appearances. The second introduces us to the clarity of our mind, and the third is a meditation on our root mind. Together they help us gain a deeper understanding of our mind, through which we can discover our own inner potential for lasting peace and happiness.

August 18 – Meditation to relax body and mind: Body of light
August 25 – Meditation for clarity of mind: Clarity
September 1 – Meditation for deep inner peace: The Root Mind
