Drop-in Meditation Sundays in Guelph

These classes provide a basic introduction to Buddhist teachings and meditations. Through these we can learn how to use Buddha’s advice as a solution to our daily problems and in this way come to experience a sense of peace and happiness in our lives. Classes run in a 3 – 4 week series but each class is standalone – so you can drop-in at any time. Everyone is welcome! You do not need to be a Buddhist to attend, or to benefit from the classes – just drop in!

Come and meditate with us in Guelph. We have comfortable chairs and mats and cushions are available for those who prefer to sit on the floor. Herbal tea and refreshments are available after class if you would like to stay awhile. Everyone is welcome.

By developing and maintaining compassion and wisdom in daily life, we can transform our lives, improve our relationships with others and look behind appearances to see the way things actually exist. In this way we can solve all our daily problems and accomplish the real meaning of our human life. With compassion and wisdom, like the two wings of a bird, we can quickly reach the enlightened world of a Buddha.

~ Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Modern Buddhism

Improve your emotional and spiritual well-being and find serenity and balance in this hectic world. In the book Modern Buddhism, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso writes that Buddhism is suitable for everyone because it accords with our daily life experiences. It will improve our happiness, well-being and relationships. Learn about Buddha’s teachings and how training your mind can help transform daily life problems, show you how to skillfully deal with conflict and find strength in the face of discouragement – and do it all with a compassionate heart and a peaceful mind.

Topic for October: Self Respect, Self-Confidence

We are all familiar with feelings of discouragement, low self-esteem or just general awkwardness when dealing with others in some situations. How are these negative, uncomfortable feelings develop? How do they have a hold over the way we think of ourself? By following Buddha’s practical advice we can learn to see ourself in a strong and positive way – bringing genuine self-confidence into our mind through strengthening our own self – respect while at the same time deepening our respect for others. Join us for this 4-week series in October and increase your own inner strength.
