Meditation Classes for Beginners

If we really want to find peace in our mind we need to learn how to meditate. In these classes Gen Kelsang Dema will explain how we can let go of frustrations, anxiety, stress and other negative minds and replace them with positive, peaceful minds through very simple and easy to practice meditations.

All our classes and events are suitable for beginners and teach how to meditate and reduce stress, anxiety and other negative states of mind. Learn how to become peaceful, relaxed and happy through simple meditation techniques.
