Sunday Meditation Topic for July

Increasing Our Patience in Daily Life

Sundays
2:30 – 4pm

Online & Onsite

weekly meditation classesThe pure compassion of a Buddha is able to ceaseless benefit all living beings. If we all have Buddha seed or potential for this unlimited compassion how can we awaken this compassionate potential to heal ourselves and the world around us? We can awaken the pure potential by engaging in the practices of a Bodhisattva – the six perfections.

This Spring and Summer, we will get some experience of the Bodhisattva’s perfections of: giving, moral discipline, patience, effort, concentration and wisdom – practices to increase our own positive happy and peaceful minds and that will turn empower us to benefit others – our family, friends, community – and eventually, all living beings.

For meditation classes this July will focus deepening our practice of patience. By patience we do not mean “gritting our teeth” and bearing it but instead a deep patience that is experienced by a peaceful mind, free from problems. This patience comes from increasing our wisdom and our compassion. Over the month of July, we will learn how we can be patient, content and happy in even the most difficult times, by increasing our inner wisdom and compassion for others.

In each class we will have the opportunity to contemplate and understand how we can improve the practice of benefitting others and heal the world around us with meditations, contemplations and practice in our daily life. Join us for meditation classes this July. Everyone welcome.

Each week is a new topic. We offer this class by onsite and online on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings. Join us for Sunday meditation from 2:30 to 4pm every Sunday.
