The Art of Letting Go: Embracing Freedom through Kadampa Buddhism

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. At the end of each class there will be an opportunity to ask questions. You can attend any or all of these great drop-in classes.

As conscientious Dharma practitioners, we should observe our own shortcomings instead of being preoccupied with those of other people.
