  • Deal with challenges in a positive way
  • Develop an inner clarity of mind known as wisdom

Format: Each class is 75 minutes long and is broken down into several sections. We begin with an introduction to the topic covered, then we still our minds with a guided 10-minute breathing meditation. This is followed by a 25-minute commentary on the actual meditation practice, then 10-minute guided meditation on the topic, and 15+ minutes of intra-class discussion, questions and answers. After class feel free to stay and visit and discuss with like-minded practitioners.

Universal Compassion, our main concern is to help and benefit others. In doing so we should learn how to remain humble and not boast about what we are doing. This very pure form of love, putting ourself at the service of others, is the high mind of an enlightened being, and the source of balance and stable contentment.
