Tuesdays 10-11:30am

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.

The 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.

Term 2: Feb 6 – Mar 17 (6 Weeks)

Our basic wish in life is to be happy all the time, but how do we accomplish this? Buddha explained that the real source of happiness is inner peace. If we can learn to maintain a peaceful mind all the time then we will be happy all the time. The reason why we find it so hard to be happy all the time is that delusions, such as fear and anxiety, are always causing us to see the world in an exaggerated negative way. By contemplating and meditating on ultimate truth, or emptiness, we can learn to see through the illusions of our mind. Then we will understand things as they really are and, not only will we be happy all the time, but we can become a source of happiness for others. Then we will have accomplished the true meaning of our life. In this series we will learn how to meditate on emptiness and develop deep inner peace.
