The downtown Seattle class is taught by Gen Kelsang Khedrub, the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Center WA. Gen Khedrub, a Western Buddhist monk, has been studying and practicing Kadampa Buddhism under Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s guidance for many years. His heartfelt teachings are presented with clarity and humor that make them accessible to everyone. Through his kindness, humility and deep understanding of Buddhist teachings, Gen Khedrub provides an inspiring example of a contemporary Buddhist practitioner that we can follow.

When Gen Khedrub is out of town, this class is taught by other meditation teachers from KMC Washington.

“When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within.” – The New Meditation Handbook
