The Basics of Buddhist Meditation

The Building Blocks for Inner Transformation

It’s so easy to get discouraged these days. But Buddhist meditation offers a path for taking the sufferings we see in the world and transforming them into an uplifting path. Buddha taught us how we can face even our biggest fears, and through deep contemplation, turn them into love, compassion, and true happiness.

In this Basics of Buddhist meditation course, you’ll discover the building blocks for the kind of meditation practice that has been empowering lasting, positive change in spiritual practitioners for centuries.
