Weekly Meditation Classes
with Buddhist Teacher Dylan Jordan
Detox for Our Minds
Negative emotions can too often crowd our mind and interfere with our happiness, but meditation, mindfulness, and a practical application of Buddha’s timeless wisdom can bring us freedom. In this series of classes, we will unpack the famous Buddhist teaching known as the Four Noble Truths. These allow us to identify, reduce, and finally let go completely of our habitually unproductive responses to life’s problems, channeling our focus into a more constructive and fulfilling direction. Everyone is welcome!

When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within.Geshe Kelsang Gyatso -
Meditation classes offer the chance to learn how to make our mind calm and peaceful. By training in meditation we will learn to develop inner peace, giving us the ability to stay happy and positive all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances.
Meditation offers an opportunity to change the way we react to people and difficult situations in our life. Learn how to feel calm, peaceful and relaxed, no matter what problems are arising. Using simple yet profound techniques, discover how to feel happy and have a positive outlook by gaining more control of your mind through meditation.
In these classes, we learn meditations to unwind and relax, develop stronger concentration and to settle our busy minds.
