Understanding the Meditation Practice
In this series of classes we will receive commentary and guided meditations from the text “The New Meditation Handbook“ and“Transform Your Life”, The Path of Compassion and Wisdom. We will study this profound and beautiful presentation of Buddha’s “Stages of the Path to Enlightenment” written by the 11th Century Buddhist Master Atisha.
Explore through Meditation, Commentary and Discussion the Method to Create an Inner Space and Stillness that Enables us to Control our Mind Regardless of External Circumstances.
