Meditation & Becoming the Person You Want to Be
January 6 | 10am – 1pm
At the start of the year our mind naturally turns to ways we can make our life more meaningful and rewarding. On this course we will learn practical meditations to identify and realize our true potential throughout the year.
This half-day workshop includes guided meditations, practical advice on how to maintain the experience of inner peace in daily life and time to discuss the ideas presented. Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary.
The class will be held in the Gideon Putnam Room in the Admin Building at Spa State Park.
Next Class: The Healing Power of Compassion
December 14 | 7-8:30pm
The supremely positive mind is universal compassion, which is developed using the special meditations in this book.
As we gradually replace our habitual self-cherishing with a genuine cherishing of others, we find our powers of transformation increase. Eventually we reach the point where we can transform any situation, however unpleasant, into a positive experience and an opportunity to make progress in our spiritual development.
Each class costs $10 per person and consists of guided meditation, practical advice for daily life and time to discuss with like-minded people.

Sometimes we feel trapped in the past and unable to move on. Feelings of unhappiness about what has happened in the past or ‘what might have been’ prevents us from fully appreciating the beauty and richness of our life. We need to learn to forgive others – and ourselves. By embracing forgiveness we embrace peace, hope, gratitude, and joy. This course will focus on practical Buddhist meditations that will enable us to let go of the past, find joy in the present, and create a happy and fulfilling future.
