Every year on New Year’s Eve, many of us resolve to change our lives and move in a better direction. Buddha taught that the method to improve our life is to improve our own mind – cultivating states of mind that produce happiness and avoiding those that result in unhappiness. The best method to do this is to train in meditation. Meditation makes our mind peaceful, and when our mind is peaceful, we are happy.
To help you start off 2021 in a way that’s personally transformative, we’re inviting you to take the 30 day Buddhist Meditation Challenge from January 16th to February 16th and beyond. What better way to begin 2021 than by cultivating the positive habit of a daily meditation practice!
Cost: Saturday courses $24 each or $40 for both; a month of guided meditations $40; Both courses AND the meditations $60 | No charge for Members (Only $50/month for membership. Click KMCC Members)
