Kadampa December Buddhism Workshop
The Kadampa Living Lightly with Wisdom Meditation workshop will be held in person from 2 to 5 p.m., December 4, at Kadampa Meditation Center Chicago-Wicker Park Branch, and will be available online as a recording for 72 hours afterward. The text is Modern Buddhism (free e-book available).
Resident teacher Gen Kelsang Zamling will explore Buddha’s teachings on emptiness, the true nature of reality. Participants will learn to let go of painful attitudes and patterns; live lightly and adapt creatively to our world; and be of genuine benefit to others. The course will examine wisdom in a way that’s practical and effective, with meditations and mindfulness tools to use right away that will make a significant impact on day-to-day life. No previous experience is necessary, and each session will include teaching, guided meditations and time for questions.
