Meditation Unitarian Society of HartfordNourishing SpiritSpiritual PracticesMeditation Meditation At the heart of all Buddhist wisdom lies one astonishing truth: that a way out of suffering and into a more deeply fulfilling life is not a myth, but a reality available to you through the power of skillful inquiry. With Buddhism for Beginners, celebrated teacher and author Jack Kornfield invites us to experience the gifts of this vast spiritual tradition. Created specifically to address the questions of first-time students, this full length retreat guides participants through Buddhism’s cornerstone teachings, the principles of meditation practice, wisdom stories, traditional parables, and inspiring true accounts distilled from Buddhism’s far-reaching legacy.
