Studying Shantideva’s Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, and its commentary Meaningful to Behold, by Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Foundation program meets weekly, allowing for deeper, more structured study of a particular book, prayers, meditation and discussion.

Everyone is welcome!

Our classes are designed to give a broad practical introduction to Buddhist meditation, teachings, and practice. They combine guided meditation with practical spiritual advice that you can immediately apply as a method for improving the quality of your daily life. Through guided meditations, you will learn how to meditate, concentrate, and overcome distractions. You will also learn different meditation topics that help  overcome negative states of mind, such as anger, stress and strong attachment, and cultivate positive states of mind, such as patience and love.

 

Everyone is welcome – just come and experience a class for yourself.

COVID-19 

We are physically closed to the public and are now providing online meditation classes to continue our weekly program and events.
Please check our CALENDAR for latest schedule.

If you have any questions, please contact us at info@meditationinjacksonville.org, or calling us: (904) 222-8531.

I have enjoyed, learned, and benefited from every class, puja, empowerment, lesson, session, or activity-event that I have attended. The Principles of Wisdom and Compassion taught can be applied to most any situation a person experiences (regardless of their religious beliefs).
