Program Description:

You may attend just one class, or the entire series.

This innovative weekly group practice session* is a precious opportunity to benefit from Ven Steve’s decades of experience as a Tibetan Buddhist monastic and to bask  in recent inspiration he has derived from classes with His Holiness the Dalai Lama 🌞🌞🌞.

All levels of practitioner, from complete beginner up, are welcome to join. Each week we will start with meditation upon the breath and then settle down into a state of being that is at home with the pure nature of mind. Then we will loosen up the sense of self, engaging in a way of meditating on emptiness that is not overly technical. Then, on top of this, we will meditate on Bodhichitta … This is the warm heart associated with the natural human quality of kindness that His Holiness refers to so often when he is teaching, and also personally embodies so unstintingly.

* Please note this is an experiential practice, not a guided meditation.
