Meditation Essentials

With Gen Kelsang Delek

Gen Delek will give a step-by-step presentation of all the essential stages of preparing for meditation.

She will explain the role of prayers and the importance of developing faith in Buddha. This class will provide you with the whys, how to, and the confidence for you to design your personal sacred space for yourself.

This rarely given course will be of interest to everyone who wants to deepen their meditation practice.
