Diamond Way Buddhism offers effective methods to make our lives more meaningful here and now. These authentic teachings of the Buddha are highly practical toots for joyful, critically-minded people.
Every Tuesday evening we come together to engage Buddhist wisdom and meditate together. We start with a short talk on a Buddhist topic, followed by a guided meditation* and the opportunity for Q&A and socializing afterwards.
*We practice Guru Yoga Meditation on the 16th Karmapa. It lasts around 25 minutes. It's a meditation which allows mind's space, clarity and joy to naturally arise. This form of meditation is a practical and comprehensive tool for enlightenment which was composed by the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje. The 16th Karmapa made Hannah and Lama Ole Nydahl the holders of this practice, with the wish that it is always kept fresh and on the cutting edge of western minds. The emphasis is on actively continuing the pure view, obtained in meditation, into daily life. It is the basic practice of Diamond Way Buddhist centers around the world.
No prior knowledge of Buddhism or meditation experience is necessary. Everyone is welcome. We encourage everyone to bring their enthusiasm and humor :)
We have meditation cushions available. Feel free to bring your own cushion if you have one.
Diamond Way meditation centers and groups are friendly places where people engage Buddhist wisdom, meditate together, share experiences, participate in activities, and benefit from belonging to a kind, joyful community.
