Seeking peace, happiness, and solutions for problems of everyday life? Meditation is a practical tool for transforming your state of mind, solving problems, improving your sense of personal well-being, and creating happiness for both yourself and those around you.

Buddhist meditation offers a thoroughly relevant approach to the issues of modern life and shows how by understanding and transforming our state of mind we can find happiness, peace, and even bliss!

Each class includes simple instruction, guided meditation, and time for your questions. This series will teach you:

  • What is meditation & what it is not

  • The benefits of meditation & how to start

  • Simple meditations you can do at anytime

  • How to bring peaceful and positive states of mind into daily life

This series will be taught from the book The New Meditation Handbook and meditations will be taken from the Living Meditation audio series, which offers 9 guided meditations for daily life. These resources can be found here at Tharpa Publications US.
