How to Meditate:

Following the Stages of the Buddhist Path 

with Chris Taylor

Livestream & On-Demand

We all know that when our mind is peaceful we feel happy. Buddha taught that meditation creates the cause for us to experience inner peace as an effect in the future. Therefore, practicing meditation is the best method to cultivate a peaceful mind and achieve lasting happiness. 

 

In this series, Chris Taylor clearly explains everything you need to know in order to establish a daily meditation practice. The source of the meditations presented are a series of 21 practical and easy-to-follow meditations known as Kadam Lamrim or Stages of the Path, as presented in The New Meditation Handbook by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

 

Each class is taught on a drop-in basis and includes an explanation of one of the 21 Lamrim meditations, a guided meditation, and ideas for how we can apply the insight we gain in meditation practically in daily life.

 

This series is suitable for all levels of experience and everyone is welcome.
