A Fresh Start Retreat

Meditation in Lancaster

Each of our meditation classes includes a traditional Buddhist prayer, a short teaching, group discussion, and silent time for contemplation and meditation. Classes are open to the public, and are held on an ongoing basis.

Current Topic:

Desirous Attachment

Everyone knows the feeling of desire. While there are many desires that can be beneficial, very often our desires lead to frustration, disappointment, depression, and other painful feelings. Buddha explained that uncontrolled desire is the source of all suffering and problems. This week, let’s learn to identify uncontrolled desire and talk about what we can do to reduce it.
