Transforming our Life with Meditation

These Sunday morning classes with Todd are truly transformational. Based on the book How to Transform Your Life, he will explain ways of looking and being that make us happy – and by passing it forward, we bring happiness to others, too. By practising these meditations – both on the meditation cushion and in our busy daily life – we will improve our health and wellbeing, and our relationships with others.


Todd Arseneau studies on the Foundation Program at KMC Fraser Valley. He is a down-to-earth, practical teacher with many examples from his experience with applying meditation in daily life as a school teacher and father of 2 boys.


Jill Arseneau is a member of the Teacher Training Program and has been studying, meditating and teaching at Kadampa Meditation Centre for many years.  As a wife and mother of 2 boys, she has a wealth of practical, real-life examples and a deep understanding of Dharma that bring her teachings to life.
