Anyone can learn how to meditate, regardless of background or beliefs. Our community class will introduce Buddhist meditation, teachings, and practice.
The purpose of meditation is to give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that can benefit both your emotional well-being and your overall health.
In life, often most of our time and energy is devoted to mundane activities, such as seeking material and emotional security, enjoying sensory pleasures, developing a good reputation and so on.
Although these things might make us happy for a short time, we often find that these moments of temporary happiness turn right back into dissatisfaction and once more we find ourselves engaged in the chasing more worldly pleasures. And this cycle of pleasure and dissatisfaction repeats.
True fulfillment cannot be found from external circumstances, it must come from within our own mind. With meditation we come to better understand that happiness is a state of mind. If our mind is pure and peaceful, the world we experience will also be pure and peaceful. That’s the goal of meditation. It is not easy, it takes time and practice.
