Jan 26 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Start Meditating: It's a New Year

Meditation is increasingly popular and the benefits are well-known. But, getting started isn’t as easy as watching a YouTube video. Our ability to meditate is built upon experience and those experiences have more power when shared directly from one meditator to another.

In this class, we will learn from our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Wangpo, who has been studying Buddhist meditation for over 20 years. He will be providing some practical tips about meditation to help us get started and improve our meditation practice.

Class fee is $25
Reduced rate (50% off) for GP members, seniors, students, and unemployed.
Everyone is Welcome

Tackling Depression
Feb 2 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Tackling Depression

Depression affects everyone. For some people, sometimes, depression is a major event and then there are instances that are noticeable and yet feel controllable. There is no shame in experiencing feelings of sadness, depression, or being blue. Regardless of the scope of our depressed feelings, we always desire a solution to sadness. We all want to stop feeling down.

If you are familiar with these experiences, consider learning how meditation and Buddha’s teachings can help you take your mind away from depressed feelings and into better, more comfortable spaces. This workshop will look at a few of Buddha’s powerful techniques for opening and illuminating the heart to bring joy and connectedness. With good perspectives and spiritual power, we can definitely change our mind.

Death and Dying
Feb 15 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Death and Dying

We are alive, therefore we will die. This is a simple truth. We are not shocked when we hear these words. Yet, how much does death shape our life? We do not need to live in a state of constant fear of dying, nor do we need to die with regrets. We can balance the days in our life with a healthy understanding of death and we will find more meaning and happiness arising from our decisions.

We will be looking at Death and Dying over the course of 3 classes, each class being held on the 3rd Friday of the month. Each class will look at a different aspect of death and dying from the Buddhist perspective.

In this class we will look at what is death and what we need to do if we want to be prepared.
Follow up classes will be held on March 15 and April 19

Self-Control
Feb 23 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Self-Control

Would you like to have more self-control? This workshop will help you accomplish your goal of self-control! Before attending this workshop, we have an interesting point of consideration – who is in control when you lack self-control?

We will be looking at how impulses develop, how we can have control over them and how we can establish new habits that are in-line with our wishes and ambitions.

The topics covered are useful for everyone and can be easily applied. Everyone is welcome, regardless of background.

Tushita KBC is the spiritual home for many people in the South Puget Sound. Of course, the doors are open to each and every person who passes by. Because our spiritual home exists as part of our open, inviting community we take time to cherish the space and make the Center more welcoming.

There are a lot of things that we will be doing as we clean the space. There will be ways for everyone to contribute, from young to old, and regardless of any restrictive conditions. You can join in for the whole event or just a short portion. Everyone will be happy to have you come in.
