Sunday Meditations for World Peace


Sundays from 10:00 to 11:15 AM in person with Kadam Michelle Gauthier


In these uncertain times, there is nothing more meaningful than making prayers for world peace and for the safety and happiness of all living beings. These classes include a guided meditation, a short teaching and beautiful chanted prayers for world peace. The focus is on solutions to problems in daily life, authentic optimism and the development of altruistic love and compassion. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Our meditation classes 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.

What happens at a class
