Happiness and suffering are states of mind, and so their main causes are not to be found outside the mind. If we want to be truly happy and free from suffering, we must learn how to control our mind.
— Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Founder of The New Kadampa Tradition

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.

Healing from the Heart: Meditating on Affectionate Love

Offered in FebruArY in Millburn Mall and Ridgewood

Sometimes our uncontrolled thoughts tell us that we will never be happy, that we don’t deserve good conditions or that we aren’t good enough. This self-hatred is a spiritual obstacle. Learning to meditate can help us to love ourselves and appreciate others. Unconditional love for everyone has tremendous power for spiritual transformation. It will create a more peaceful world. Classes build as a series; each one stands alone, and drop-ins are welcome. Appropriate for beginners and those with prior experience of meditation.

Everyone is welcome
