The Power of Meditation to Change Your Life

We can be very familiar with meditation these days without experiencing meditation’s true benefits. In these classes, learn the authentic methods of meditation as taught by Buddha, and how such methods work to produce lasting positive effects in our mind. Learn how to effectively unwind the mind, reduce stress and anxiety, and find a special peaceful experience through Buddhist meditation.
