Healing Ourself & Others
According to Buddha, all disease and suffering, both mental and physical, are caused by delusions—negative states of mind such as attachment, anger, and ignorance. We are unaware of how these minds impact others and erode our own well being.
With good intentions, good results happen and when we have bad intentions, bad results happen — people are harmed and we destroy the mental peace of of ourself and others. We can heal ourself by using meditation to observe these three poisons in our mind and transform our daily experiences with the healing medicine of Buddha’s teachings, Dharma.
Drop into any class or join us for the whole series. Suitable for beginners and experienced meditators alike. Everyone welcome.
