Understanding Karma: Creating the Life You Want
When we understand the laws of karma, our life becomes an open canvas on to which we can create the life we want. By creating positive actions of body speech and mind, we can learn to create a fulfilling life. We can also learn to purify negative actions and tendencies so we do not have to experience their undesirable results.
“The law of karma is a special instance of the law of cause and effect, according to which all our actions of body, speech and mind are causes and all our experiences are their effects.” -Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, Joyful Path of Good Fortune
Each class includes a guided meditation. No need to pre-register, just drop in as your schedule allows!
Every class will begin with a brief introduction, followed by a guided breathing meditation to reduce stress and calm the body and mind. There will then be a short teaching on how to apply meditation to daily life to increase our positive minds and decrease negative minds like stress and anger.
Before Sharon moved to Asheville in 2011, she volunteered as the Education Program Coordinator for several years at Kadampa Meditation Center New York, where she also guided retreats and taught classes.
Today, Sharon is a part of the Special Teacher Training Program and teaches our Asheville branch class. Sharon and her husband have one son.
