Welcome to our weekly series, Path to Inner Satisfaction: An Introduction to Buddhism and the Art of Meditation. This is a perfect series for all those who are new to meditation and all those wanting to deepen their meditation practice. Over the course of the five weeks, Geshe Legtsok will guide us on an enlightening expedition into the profound teachings of Buddhism, coupled with the transformative practice of guided meditation. Each class will include ~30 minutes of guided meditation combined with teachings and Q & A.

Week 4: Will explore invaluable techniques for “Working with Anger and Cultivating Loving-Kindness,” enabling us to transform negative emotions into unconditional kindness.
