Meditation 101: A Buddhist Approach

02:00 pm to 03:30 pm
Kadampa Meditation Center Bloomington, 406 S. Walnut St. Bloomington, 47401

New Monthly Class
Meditation 101 : A Buddhist Approach
3rd Saturday of the Month 2-3:30pm
With Buddhist nun, Kelsang Kalden
This class is an introduction to the basics of meditation that is perfect for everyone! If you’ve ever wanted to start meditating, but didn’t know how or even why, this is the class for you! Or, if you have some experience with meditation but need to ask questions that will help your meditation practice improve and grow, this is also the perfect class for you.
Meditation is a way to calm the mind, making us more peaceful, balanced and focused in our daily life ( our studies, work, our relationships). Ultimately, it enables us to awaken our inner positive potential , and helps us develop and find lasting joy and contentment.
When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within. This feeling of contentment and well-being helps us to cope with the busyness and difficulties of daily life.
This is a beginner course open to everyone. We provide chairs or cushions to sit on. No special clothing required.

This event will be on Wednesday Oct. 24th at 7 pm in Hodge Hall at the Kelley School of Business. This event is to help promote the idea of advocating for world relief efforts from our Congress People. The event is open to the public as I will be giving a presentation on how easy it is to contact their congressperson or senator and have them support bills that help the world’s most extreme poor. As an Intern with The Borgen Project, and a member of Pi Lambda Phi where our philanthropy is The Elimination of Prejudice, we need to take the bad thoughts of congress and what they don’t do, but mobilize everyone to make sure that every person in this world, can live a happy life, and and equal life as well.
