SUNDAYS 10:00 – 11:15AM
Without first developing inner peace, world peace will remain impossible to achieve. We all have within us the potential for peace and happiness, and cultivating this potential creates the harmony we seek. Each class includes a relaxing breathing meditation, a teaching, a contemplative meditation, and a closing dedication.

Meditations for World Peace is team taught by Leisha Diane and Charles Morris, senior students on the Teacher Training Program.
Leisha has a clear teaching style and is an excellent teacher for beginner and experienced meditators alike.
Charles is admired for his peaceful presence and clear teachings. Charles is inspired by Buddha’s teachings on emptiness, the true nature of reality.
“Outer and inner phenomena are like illusions, like dreams, and like reflections of the moon in a clear lake. For though they appear they do not truly exist.”
-Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
