Lamrim Meditation Retreat
with Gen Kelsang Gomlam
January is retreat month in the New Kadampa Tradition. This guided meditation retreat is a perfect way to start the year by experiencing the powerful benefits of meditation. Each session includes a brief chanted prayer, a short talk on the meditation topic, and guided meditation practice using How to Understand the Mind.
In between sessions, feel welcome to enjoy the peace and tranquility of our meditation room, read, or share a snack or beverage with a friend in our community room.
This format provides a wonderful opportunity to learn to develop a daily meditation practice that will have a positive impact in our daily lives. It is suitable for every level of practitioner, including those new to meditation. Please feel welcome to come to any or all of the sessions. See calendar for session times. Everyone welcome!
