Practical instructions showing how to transform even the most difficult daily life experiences into opportunities for spiritual growth through developing and enhancing minds of universal love and compassion.

Benefits

The heart of Buddha’s teachings is unconditional love and compassion. In this inspiring explanation of the popular Buddhist poem Training the Mind in Seven Points, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso reveals powerful and far-reaching methods for us to develop these altruistic states. Ancient meditative techniques that have been tried and tested for centuries are brought alive and made relevant to our everyday experiences. Also included is a practical explanation of how we can transform our day-to-day problems—even the most demanding and difficult conditions—into opportunities for personal and spiritual development. By pointing the way to an unchanging freedom and happiness, this immensely readable book challenges us to grow, and will have a remarkable impact on our life.

Enrollment

In general, one may enroll at any time, and you may try two classes before enrolling. Particular class days are more conducive as 'trial days' so please contact us for a good day to come. If you decide to join us you can enroll right after the second trial class.

Location ~ Greeley  

Heruka Buddhist Center in Greeley

710 Eleventh Ave, Room L30
Greeley, CO 80631

Tips on getting here

This is the old Greeley high school. It is next to the UCCC, Rec. Center, and Lincoln Park Library.

You may park in front or back. Or, there is a bus stop about 20' from the door on Eleventh Avenue at Eight St.

The easiest way to find room L30 is to enter the lower-level west doors on Eleventh Avenue, facing the Santiago's restaurant. If, instead, you go in the main doors, you will need to take the stairs or the elevator down.

NOTE: Even if you take the elevator, there are still 6 steps to go down.
