Life is but a Dream | Free Public Talk

with Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Norden

Friday, May 19th, 6:30–7:45 p.m.


In Buddhism, "emptiness" refers not to nothingness, but to the ultimate nature of reality. It is an experience of profound mental freedom that allows us to let go of our painful habits. Through meditating on emptiness we can quickly become the person we wish to be -- profoundly happy, compassionate, and wise.
In this talk, Buddhist nun, Gen Norden will include practical instruction, guided meditations, and time for questions. No previous experience is needed, and absolutely everyone is welcome to attend.

Following this talk is a guided meditation retreat on Emptiness on Saturday May 20th
