with Ron Caldwell

Learn the basics and lay the foundation for an effective and joyful meditation practice. Discover how meditation can help us de-stress, solve our problems, and make our lives more satisfying.

MeditatingThe Lamrim instructions are easy to understand and practice, and provide us with a thorough and systematic experience of all the Buddha’s instructions that we can readily apply to solving the problems of daily life. Lamrim means “the stages of the path to enlightenment.” It is a special set of instructions that is the synthesis of all of Buddha Shakyamuni’s 84,000 teachings. With a deep experience of Lamrim, there will be no basis for these problems. Eventually, we shall attain freedom from all suffering, and the unchanging peace and happiness of enlightenment.

What is the mind and how does it function? Since all of our experiences of happiness and unhappiness depend on our state mind, there is no more important subject to understand than our own mind. Through the practice of meditation, we can learn to distinguish between healthy and unhealthy states of mind. Then we can begin to heal our own mind and become happy all the time.
