Class subjects
The Power of Compassion Sept 16, 23, Oct 14, 21
The practice of taking and giving is a practical meditation on love and compassion that harnesses the power of our imagination. For centuries people have loved this meditation for its many good qualities. It deepens our love and compassion, purifies our mind, cures sickness, and ripens our potential for enlightenment.

Over 4 classes you will have the opportunity to practice this meditation and appreciate its benefits in your own experience

The Supreme Good Heart Nov 4
This meditation is on bodhichitta,  the ‘mind of enlightenment’, a profoundly compassionate good heart which enables us to solve all our problems, fulfill all our wishes, and develop the power to help others in the most appropriate and beneficial ways. Step out of the ordinary and try developing this extraordinary state of mind in meditation.

The True Nature of Things Nov 18
Gen Delek will introduce this most important subject: emptiness, the true nature of things. When we understand how things exist we will be liberated from all suffering permanently.

Reliance on a Spiritual Guide Nov 25
The final meditation in The New Meditation Handbook helps us understand the role of a Spiritual Guide, or Teacher, who guides us on the path to enlightenment.
