Kalachakra in Elwood
August 29, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30pm on Tuesday, repeating until October 3, 2017
The Kalachakra (lit. ‘Wheel of Time’) tantra is a Buddhist system of philosophy and meditation which aims at developing a stable mind, insight & wisdom, compassion and immutable bliss. It was initially taught by the Buddha to Suchandra, the King of Shambhala and is now practised in all Tibetan schools of Buddhism, particularly the Jonang tradition.
This group is facilitated by Peter Memmel who will introduce you to the foundations of Buddhist teachings and guide you through an accessible meditation that gives you a taste of this beautiful practice.
