Meditation on Emptiness: The Wisdom that Heals, Liberates and Enlightens

Every Sunday, 10:30AM - 12:00PM

 
Of all Buddha’s teachings, none are more far-reaching and transformative than the teachings on emptiness, the true nature of reality. It is through our understanding of emptiness – in particular, the freedom that we experience as a result – that we can then come to solve all our problems and be of maximum benefit to others.

“With emptiness, anything is possible.”


Lunchtime Meditation

Create some space and peace in your busy day - relax, refresh and de-stress! Cultivate inner peace through a guided practice and enjoy the rest of your day with an inspired, uplifting, and positive mind.
