What is enlightenment?
Enlightenment is here defined as an awakened state of more lasting happiness and freedom from suffering. It is a more joyful, liberated, and vivid state that can be experienced by everyone, in varying degrees within our daily life, regardless of religious beliefs. And it is not just for special moments on a meditation cushion, but rather something to be realized in all our waking moments, which is why it is called, ‘Enlightened Living.’
Meditation practice is the primary tool for training the heart and mind to become increasingly open to this enlightened way of living. The practices introduced in these classes are from the tradition of Buddhist yoga. These meditations come from a system called lojong, [mind training], and focus on combining mindfulness with loving-kindness, or compassion. Ultimately, these practices awaken us to our true nature, and the nature of true love, so they are called ‘the Way of Enlightened Beings.’
This is an open meditation group designed to offer meditation as a way to enlighten our daily life; to increase our happiness and decrease our suffering. Each class is a unique mixture of guided meditation practice along with relevant teachings or dialogue. This is an open group, so you can just come without registration. Everyone welcome, from all levels of meditation experience, zero to advanced.
Price for class is based on a suggested donation. If you cannot afford to come, just offer what you can. No one will be turned away based on funds. 🙂
