APRIL'S FOCUS: Gratitude
Gratitude is feeling appreciation and showing thankfulness for what others have done for us.
  Once we recognize our dependency and interconnection with others, we feel gratitude and repay the kindnesses with helping all beings reach enlightenment. This gratitude naturally extends towards our school teachers as well as our spiritual teachers.
  The sacrifices made by our monks and nuns at our own Center benefit us all by their willingness to share and teach the dharma. We will practice gratitude toward our sangha by showing them how much we recognize their sacrifice and appreciate their kindness.

Prison Project
KADAMPA CENTER PRISON PROJECT is a group of volunteers affiliated with the Kadampa Center community who offer prisoner-support workshops using meditation to overcome negative emotions and addictions, to more skillfully navigate life (in prison and out), and to develop spiritually, as appropriate.

MEDITATION WORKSHOPS Project volunteers facilitate weekly meditation workshops at area correctional institutions. The workshops are based on Buddhist principles and are appropriate for anyone. A typical class involves guided and silent meditation and discussion of homework related to a variety of select texts, including Comfortable with Uncertainty by Venerable Pema Chodron, and How to Meditate by Kathleen McDonald.
