Meditation Retreats

Feb 7 | Meditation at Back Bay

Our mind has limitless potential. But we can easily find ourself stuck in repetitive ways of thinking and behaving. Buddha taught many gentle methods to help us transform our mind and break free from old habits. Buddha also taught ways to stabilize more realistic, constructive and positive views, intentions and actions. It all starts with understanding and transforming our own mind. And we can do it!

This Tuesday evening meditation class will take a practical look at Buddha’s teachings on the nature and function of our mind. Each week will include:

  • guided breathing meditation
  • a short teaching on how to access more inner calm and kindness
  • a concluding contemplative time
  • Q&A time with Gen Khedrub

February 7 – Basic mindfulness training

March 7 – Love vs attachment

April 4 – The inner strength of patience

May 2 – Taking care of ourselves

Monthly free outdoor meditation in the Boston Public Garden resumes in April on Fridays. And a weekly Tuesday spring series in Back Bay will start in May.

$12 per class. Free for members. Register at the door, online in advance.

Location: These classes are held at the Church of the Covenant, 67 Newbury St.
