MEDITATION & BUDDHISM
FOR EVERYONE • NO PRE-REGISTRATION • NO PRE-REQUISITE
Discover meditation or deepen your practice and understanding of the buddhist philosophy
Thursdays • 7:30 – 8:45pm with Marco Lisi
Meditation is now scientifically recognized as one of the best methods to reduce stress and to develop inner well-being. In reality, meditation offers much more than that. These series of classes help us not only to deepen our meditation practice but also to nourish it through contemplating profound buddhist teachings, which offer us concrete solutions to our inner problems of anger, stress, impatience, attachment and jealousy. Through improving our understanding of our mind: what in our mind makes us feel happy, sad, tense or confused, we will begin a profound spiritual transformation and become the person we wish to be.
- Guided meditations
- A talk on a practical topic to nourish and deepen our experiences in meditation.

Wealth – A Buddhist Perspective
In our pursuit of happiness, we often believe that external wealth will bring all the necessary conditions for us to finally enjoy life and be free from problems. However, if we check honestly, no amount of money can bring the happiness or inner satisfaction we are looking for. The more we have, the more we want. Through the practice of meditation and Dharma (Buddha’s instructions), we will develop the inner qualities of love, compassion and wisdom. We will thereby gather the real inner wealth which will leave us fulfilled and content. Come learn how to become truly rich.
