Embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery with this series of self-contained classes, "The Art of Letting Go: Embracing Freedom through Kadampa Buddhism." In a world filled with stress, attachments, and emotional burdens, this course offers profound teachings and practical tools to help you liberate yourself from the shackles of attachment and find true inner freedom. Drawing from the timeless wisdom of Kadampa Buddhism, you'll explore the art of letting go as a path to profound peace and profound happiness. Through guided meditations, contemplative exercises, and insightful teachings, you'll learn to release negative emotions, attachments, and self-limiting beliefs that hold you back from living a fulfilling life. Discover the power of acceptance, forgiveness, and compassion as you cultivate a heart that is open, resilient, and ready to embrace life's challenges with grace. Join us on this transformative journey and unlock the profound, life-changing art of letting go with inner wisdom as your guide.

Each class includes 2 guided meditations and a teaching.  Afterwards there will be an opportunity to ask questions. These classes are suitable for beginners and those more advanced. You can attend any or all of these great drop-in classes; each class is self-contained. Everybody is welcome!

These classes take place once-a-month on  at the Almonte Public Library, 155 High Street in Almonte Ontario in the large meeting room on the first floor.

These classes are a follow-up to the Public Talk, The Healing Power of Meditation which was given on March 23 at the Almonte Old Town Hall, with Buddhist monk Gen Kelsang Thekchen.
