Wednesday Meditation Class
Habits and Addiction: Who’s in Control?
Wednesdays | Feb 7 – 28 | 6:30 – 8 pm | In-person
with Gerry Donovan, Resident Teacher of Atisha Kadampa Buddhist Center
Cost | $10 per class | FREE for Members.
Are you completely satisfied? If we’re honest, most of us would have to say we’re not! We’re constantly craving – a new phone, a new partner, a nicer house, a better job – or just some peace and quiet. Buddha explained this is because we lack inner peace and happiness, so we’re constantly seeking something, or someone, to fill the gap in our hearts. This uncontrolled desire causes us so much unhappiness, anxiety, relationship difficulties and addiction problems; it’s the root of all our suffering.
During this course Resident Teacher Gerry Donovan will offer clear advice and instructions explained by Buddha in how to overcome uncontrolled desires and let go of our constant craving through simple but powerful meditation techniques and find lasting inner peace and happiness.
The classes are given in series, but each class is also self-contained and can be taken on a drop-in basis.
If you’ve been coming regularly, consider becoming a monthly member for $40/month. General Program Membership entitles you to unlimited access to all weekly meditation classes.
