This ancient meditative practice is the best way to transform all types of difficulty — such as pain, illness, and anxiety — into beneficial power. Once we learn this practice, every breath we take can be deeply meaningful. This meditation creates healing, increases our spiritual strength and our ability to take on challenges.  It will help us to develop the supreme good heart of a Bodhisattva.

This series will be based on the free ebook How to Transform Your Life.

Finding Peace in Reality

With KMC Phoenix Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Tabkay


August 15 – September 26


Online and In-Person

Cost:  by donation

There is no better method for experiencing peace of mind and happiness than to understand and meditate on Buddha’s teachings on reality, or emptiness. These teachings free us from mental pain and bad habits and give us mental flexibility to respond to life’s difficulties in a positive and constructive manner. 


This series will explore one of the easiest ways to meditate on emptiness, a powerful meditation known as dependent relationship. This series will be excellent preparation for our Away-Retreat at the International Kadampa Retreat Center in WIlliams October 1-4.


For those wishing to explore the teachings more deeply on their own, we will be using the texts How to Transform your life, How to Solve Our Human Problems, and Mirror of Dharma with Additions.
