New Wednesday Classes


In November, we’re offering several series of classes on Wednesday evenings, beginning with The Lightness of Being: Purifying Our Negative Karma. Many of our problems and sufferings result directly from our negative karma.  We can reduce this karmic burden and lighten up our life by continuously and conscientiously practicing purification.

In this three-part series, we will learn the basic powers of purification and how to apply them to various problems through practical and effective purification methods.

This series will be followed by another series, called Creating Sacred Space: Preparatory Practices for Meditation. Click here for more information.


Living Meaningfully, Dying JoyfullyLiving Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully

Everyone dies. Everyone needs to know the meaning of death and rebirth. We need to ask ourselves, what is the most meaningful way to use our life? What will make us truly happy? What will benefit others most? And when this life is over, what will help us then?

Join Gen Kelsang Dema for this series of classes and meditations and learn practical Buddhist methods to help ourselves and those close to us die happy and in peace.

The classes will take place on Sunday afternoons in November and early December. Click here for more information or to register online.
