Meditation and Buddhism in Largo

Mondays 6:30-7:30pm

with Ray Vogel

Water Lillies

Meditation classes in Largo teach simple, practical meditation techniques based on the teachings of Kadampa Buddhism. Their intent is to help people to gain a personal experience of inner peace, overcome their daily problems and find real happiness in their hearts.

All of our General Program classes are suitable for everyone—from brand new beginners to experienced meditators—and consist of guided meditations, a talk and discussion. Classes are grouped into series of 4-6 weeks, focusing on a theme or meditation technique.

Each class is self contained, though you are welcome to attend the whole course. They provide an ideal introduction to meditation and Buddhism, teaching effective and practical methods for overcoming problems and increasing happiness in daily life.


Note: the Largo Community Center closes on or around major holidays. Please check their website for details or to confirm class dates.

Letting Go of Anger

Book: How to Solve Our Human Problems
Term 9: Nov 26 – Dec 21

Nothing harms relationships more than anger. Anger is a destructive response to feelings of unhappiness and it appears in many forms and disguises. Sometimes it manifests as a feeling of stress, other times it takes the form of depression. From the slightest frustration to resentment and embittered rage, anger is an emotion we can learn to understand, reduce, and eventually conquer. In this way, we can learn to prevent anger from arising and channel our thoughts in a more constructive direction.
