  • Reclaiming Our Strength; Exploring the Ground of Our Being

    The Buddha gave us many teachings to help guide and support us in our everyday lives that remain just as vital now as 2,600 years ago. In this time of profound change and uncertainty, spiritual practice is a refuge and strength. 

    Join us for a deep dive into the beautiful practices of The Five Strengths; Mindfulness, Confidence, Energy, Concentration and Wisdom. When developed, these interwoven and interconnected qualities become the bedrock - reliable and enduring resources for our lives. Each 2-hour session includes guided and silent meditation, a talk and group discussion.
