Take Classes with a Buddhist Nun




Kelsang Chondzin

Mending Roots Wellness will host a class with Kelsang Chondzin, an American Buddhist nun and experienced Buddhist teacher, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m., every Wednesday except July 25. Topics include how to create more love in life, overcoming anger and irritation, and dissolving anxiety and worry.

Owner Jessica McCoy says, “After a hard day's work, many people just want to get home for dinner and not come out again at night. This after work non-dogmatic meditation and practical teaching on Modern Buddhism gives people a chance to develop their spiritual life comfortably. Practicing meditation and getting practical ideas can make life happier and more peaceful.”

Chondzin has been ordained in the New Kadampa tradition, which emphasizes practical Modern Buddhism, and holds a BA from Stanford University and an MA from Antioch University.

Classes are $10. Location: 2138 Market St., Camp Hill. For more information, call 717-850-7120, email MendingRootsWellness@gmail.com or visit MendingRootsWellness.com.
