with Chris Gharbi
We are all searching for ways to make our mind more peaceful. Meditation is a great tool to accomplish this, but we may be unsure how to do it, or how to direct our thoughts. In this series we will learn what it means to meditate, and the beneficial objects upon which to focus our mind. Through gaining a deep understanding of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book Joyful Path of Good Fortune, we will learn to develop an enjoyable meditation practice that will bring us inner peace.
JULY and AUGUST in Millburn Mall and Ridgewood
We have all been disappointed trying to find happiness in external things. Stop wishing for people and situations to make you happy, and take personal responsibility for peace, joy, and love. Meditation can help us find happiness within. This series will introduce the lamrim, a time-tested method of meditation.
A companion book is "The New Meditation Handbook" by Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Classes build as a series; each one stands alone, and drop-ins are welcome.
