We tend to grasp at our situations and feelings as being solid and fixed. When we do this, everything feels heavy and unmoveable. By relying upon Buddha’s timeless wisdom and using tools of meditation, we can begin to relax our grip and learn to live lightly.

If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort and so we will experience true happiness.

In this retreat, we will explore meditation techniques to relax our body and mind and thus experience more freedom and joy.

This mini meditation retreat is led by Laura McPeake, Senior Kadampa Buddhist Teacher at AKBC. Suitable for all levels of experience. Everyone is welcome.

$25, $15 for seniors, students, and FP members
