Upcoming Saturday Classes

What Matters Most

Followed by Community Potluck and Prayers for Meditation

Saturday, June 15th

Why would anyone want to meditate on death? Isn’t that depressing?! Not according to Buddha. Since death is the one thing we know for sure is going to happen to us, not to consider it when we are thinking about how to make the most of our lives makes no sense. It is in the full awareness of our own mortality that we naturally prioritize and enjoy what matters most. In this sense, the meditation on death is profoundly life-affirming!

In this talk we will go on a journey into the profound implications of this special meditation that has been empowering spiritual practitioners for centuries.

Prayers for Meditation are the brief prayers to Buddha Shakyamuni that contain the essence of the 3 basic steps for preparing to practice meditation. Those steps are purifying our mind of negative energy, accumulating positive energy, and receiving blessings from holy beings. Everyone is welcome to join in!

Change Your Perception

Saturday, July 20th

Because "our world" is actually only our personal experience of what we perceive and how we perceive it, Buddha has explained that if we change our mind we change our world. In this class learn how meditation produces a profound change in our perception, transforming our experience of the world in the most profound and wonderful way, allowing us to experience our life as full of possibility and joy.
