    Learn How to Meditate

    With the hectic pace and demands of modern life, many people feel stressed and over-worked. It often feels like there is just not enough time in the day to get everything done. Our stress and tiredness make us unhappy, impatient and frustrated. It can even affect our health. We stay so busy we feel there is no time to slow down. But meditation actually gives you more time by making your mind calmer and more focused. A simple ten or fifteen-minute breathing meditation can help you to overcome your stress and find some peace and balance.

    Meditation can also help us to understand our awakened mind. We can learn how to transform our mind from negative to positive, from disturbed to peaceful, from unhappy to happy. Overcoming negative minds and cultivating constructive thoughts is the product of a meditation practice. This is a profound practice you can enjoy throughout the day, not just while seated on a cushion.

    In this introductory workshop you can learn the basics of meditation with Rev. Ronn McLane.   Although this workshop is being offered as part of Kansas City Buddhist Center it is important to understand this is not a workshop of religious nature and can be adapted to a secular or spiritual practice of your choice.

    Pre-registration is recommended as space may fill quickly.

    Join us for our Refuge Ceremony!  

    Sunday, March 29th, 2020

    In the Buddhist tradition, the purpose of taking refuge is to awaken from confusion and associate oneself with wakefulness. Taking refuge is a matter of commitment and acceptance and, at the same time, of openness and freedom. By taking the refuge vow we commit ourselves to freedom.

    It will be a Triple Gem service!  Come join our Sangha for meditation, chanting, Refuge vows and incense offering.  Everyone is invited to participate in taking or renewing refuge vows.  

    Taking Refuge 

    This is an invitation to begin the exploration into the practice of awakening in each and every moment. We take refuge in the mentor of human awareness, in the teachings that help to point the way and the companionship of the practicing community. There are no preliminary requirements to participating in fact some will recite the ancient vows and offer incense for the first time, and others are invited to renew their commitment again and again. 

    No sign-up is required, just show up!
