Morning Beginner Meditation Class
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.
How to Meditate
Book: The New Meditation Handbook
Term 4: Jun 19 – Jul 21
This series of classes is a practical guide to developing a daily meditation practice. It teaches us how to make ourselves and others happy by developing inner peace, and in this way making our lives more meaningful. Without inner peace there is no real happiness at all. Problems, suffering and unhappiness do not exist outside the mind; they are feelings and thus part of our mind. Therefore, it is only by controlling our mind that we can permanently stop our problems and make ourselves and others truly happy.
