Discover meditation or deepen your practice and understanding of the Buddhist philosophy

Thursdays • 7:30 – 9pm 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.

A class includes:
  • Guided meditations
  • A talk on a practical topic to nourish and deepen our experiences in meditation.
