Newport Beach – Meditation Classes Thursday Evenings (7:15 PM to 9:15 PM)
Meditation Class Series
In this series of classes we will receive commentary and guided meditations from the text “Universal Compassion“, Transforming Your Life Through Love and Compassion. We will study this profound and beautiful 12th century 3 page poem by the great Bodhisattva Geshe Chekhawa. We will receive commentary on the meaning of each line of the poem. The poem guides us onto the correct meditation paths to enlightenment.
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.
Free from distracting thoughts, develop a patient heart, a mind of loving kindness toward others and find a meaningful and happy life. Join classes anytime – drop in.
