Meditation Classes & Buddhism in Aiken, SC
Transform Your Life: A Blissful Journey
Everyone wishes to be happier, but not everyone understands the real causes of happiness. Our family, friends, career, gadgets, and entertainment can make us happy for a short while, but all of these things can also bring us problems and challenges. According to the time-tested teachings of Buddhism, real happiness comes from our own inner peace. When our mind is peaceful, we are happy; when it is unpeaceful, then we are not happy, no matter how good our external circumstances might be.
For the next several months, our class will be based on the book Transform Your Life by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Each class will include guided meditation, a practical teaching for daily life, and time for discussion. Everyone is welcome to attend; no previous experience with Buddhism or meditation is necessary.
Every class will begin with a brief introduction, followed by a guided breathing meditation and the Liberating Prayer. After meditation, there will be a short teaching and time for Q&A.
In addition to our weekday classes in these branch locations, we also offer Saturday workshops approximately once every-other-month. Visit our Events page to find out about upcoming events in your region.
