Sunday Drop-in Meditation Classes

March Meditation Classes: 
Transforming Pain

Sundays, 10 - 11:15am

Available by live stream to members

Dealing with physical, mental or emotional pain can often feel overwhelming. However, we don't need to be afraid or to push our pain away. Buddha taught many methods to help us to not just cope with pain, but to transform it through spiritual practice, so that we gain insights that gradually release us from it. Through learning how to work with our mind and heal on deeper levels, we will develop an inner flexibility and resilience that will allow us to feel grounded and safe, and to become a source of benefit for others.

In these classes, Buddhist nun and teacher Gen Chöyang will introduce a Buddhist approach to the transformation of pain and guide us through healing meditations that will empower us to feel confident and free, ready to face whatever challenges may come.


These classes are beneficial for beginners and long-term practitioners alike. Although taught as a series, each class is self-contained and can be attended individually. Classes include two guided meditations and a teaching. Drop in anytime. Everyone welcome!
