Tuesday, July 11 from 7pm to 9pm
at Jewel Heart Center
For this very special session of our Tuesday Meditation, Ven Robina will explain meditation practice in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, and will also touch upon the many misunderstandings about meditation. She will explain how we can set up an effective meditation practice or get our budding practice growing. She will also address any questions or difficulties more experienced students are having. This session is open to all students and can be a great introduction for people new to Buddhism.
