San Diego Rigpa Center Meditation Class—On Site and Online Options

Guru Rinpoche; Padmasambhava

Where do you go to learn to meditate? Or where do you go to refine the meditation skills you already have?

Rigpa U.S. is offering meditation classes at its San Diego Rigpa Meditation Center, downtown on 13th street between City College and Petco Park. Entitled "What Meditation Really Is", the class series runs 10 weeks, beginning January 27th (It's okay to join a week late or enter on the 6th week, but it would be good to contact the center to let them know you're coming) and ending March 31st. The classes begin at 7 p.m. and end promptly at 9 p.m.

The classes will also be available live online with the option to join in the discussion in the center! The online group is facilitated by an instructor.

These classes are based on the newest meditation instructions given by Sogyal Rinpoche, Tibetan author, teacher, and meditation master. They will be led by senior Rigpa students using both their own experience and video clips of Rinpoche. Suitable for those who haven't meditated and those who already have a meditation practice.

Last week's class had an extraordinary atmosphere of peace and contentment stemming from the teachings and our practice. I urge you to come and enjoy yourself in our growing, friendly Dharma community. Refreshments and snacks will be provided.

Parking is on the street or in the paid parking lot one block south of the center, which is in the Art Center building at 13th & G Street. Our door is the second from the south end of the building, facing 13th street. Push the "Rigpa" button at the door to gain entry. If that doesn't make sense, just call the center at 619-906-4291 and we'll help you out.

It helps to come a bit early to find your parking space.

There's a small donation/fee for the classes is suggested; a sliding scale can help out those who need it.
