Suitable for everyone, these drop-in classes offer practical methods to improve the quality of our lives through meditation and Buddhist teachings.
These classes will usually start with a guided meditation by Mike Boudreau followed by a recorded teaching by the well-known Canadian meditation teacher, Gen Kelsang Delek. There is a second meditation at the end. Sometimes either Gen Delek or Mike Boudreau will lead the entire class live. We hope you enjoy this opportunity to receive teachings in this special format!
Freedom from Painful Emotions
Painful emotions such as anger, jealousy, and resentment are exhausting, leaving us feeling unhappy and confused. They create endless problems in our personal lives and in society.
These classes will look at the refreshing and positive approach offered by Buddhist meditation, showing us how to enjoy real freedom from these painful states of mind. We will develop genuine patience, acceptance, compassion and forgiveness in our hearts that will help us move on and accomplish our deepest wish for inner and outer peace.
