About our Monday Evening Classes:
Introduction to Buddhism

Buddhist meditation transforms our mind into a positive state and gives our life great meaning. It improves the quality of our life on many levels – our relationships, our family, our work, and our physical and emotional well being.

Learn the essential meditations of Buddhism in this weekly class with Tim Salemno and Sarah Crutchfield. Each class focuses on a particular meditation in the Buddhist path, using the special sequence of meditations known as “Lamrim,” meaning “stages of the path to enlightenment.”

The Buddhist meditations of Lamrim awaken our wisdom and compassion, enabling us to reach our highest spiritual goals. These timeless meditations are perfectly suited to modern life – helping us to build a foundation of inner peace within our busy & often stressful lives.

This class is based on the 15 Lamrim meditations within the book The Mirror of Dharma by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
