In February and the first week of March, the Wednesday evening class explores the topic, "Blue Sky Mind: Meditations for a Clear Mind and a Wise Life."

Meditation doesn't need to be a struggle. By learning the art of joyful meditation, we will naturally have enthusiasm, confidence, and success in our meditation practice.

This course is perfect for absolute beginners and advanced students. Each class includes practical insight, instruction, and guided meditation. No previous experience is needed; absolutely everyone is welcome!


No registration available at the moment. Please try again later.

Coming in March:

Blue Sky Mind: Meditations for a Clear Mind and a Wise Life

This topic kicks off on Mar 10 with a special Public Talk, "Creating a Clear Mind in Meditation," at a special price of only $5.

Buddha taught how to tap into the unlimited power, peace, and wisdom of our mind through a meditation called "clarity of mind."  In this series we will discover how simple, powerful, and effective this meditation is for overcoming negative thoughts and emotions, focusing our mind, and awakening joy, wisdom, and inner strength.  

Everyone is welcome -- whether brand new or a seasoned practitioner. Each class includes clear and practical instruction and plenty of time for guided meditation.
