Event description
Awakening the Heart: A Half-Day Retreat

About this event

Sometimes life seems like an endless repetition of a tired routine. We feel like we’re sleepwalking through our days without meaning or purpose. Our heart can feel shut down, and we feel disconnected from life, from others and ourselves. How can we find meaning and inspiration? How can we awaken our heart and enjoy a new experience of engagement and connection?

This half-day retreat will provide an introduction to meditation essentials. In addition, we will learn basic meditation practices that produce a more loving, meaningful and engaged relationship with all we experience. As a result, we will feel empowered to maintain a regular, inspired meditation practice going forward.

Everyone is welcome. No previous meditation experience is necessary.

COST: Free for members /$25 non-members

THE BENEFITS OF MEDITATION AT VMC: It’s much more than mindfulness.

You’ve probably heard: Meditation reduces stress. It improves concentration. It benefits your health. It can even slow aging. But, that’s just the beginning—at least if you meditate at Vajradhara Meditation Center. Our meditation practices are based on a lineage of wisdom that has liberated practitioners from anxiety, stress, pain and suffering for thousands of years, long before there was “an app for that.”

Vajradhara Meditation Center provides Brooklynites with the opportunity to learn about meditation and Modern Buddhism. VMC members are your friends, and neighbors who have found these teachings to be just as transformative today. Stop in to one of our many classes and see if they work for you too.

ABOUT US:

Vajradhara Meditation Center is a member of the New Kadampa Tradition(NKT). The NKT is an International Union of Kadampa Buddhist Centers. There are currently more than 1,200 centers worldwide, with multiple locations in and around NYC. Throughout the year, we gather as a family of practitioners at the Kadampa Meditation Center, home of our national temple, for festivals, special courses, and retreats.
