Freedom From Painful Emotions

Every Sunday, 10:30AM - 12:00PM

Imagine a life completely free from anger, jealousy, heartache, dread, loneliness and all the other painful states of mind that cause us so much suffering. We often feel as if it isn’t possible to become free from these painful emotions. But it is definitely possible. Why? Because they are all states of mind, and Buddhist meditation gives us the tools to change our mind.

Create some space and peace in your busy day - relax, refresh and de-stress! Cultivate inner peace through a guided practice and enjoy the rest of your day with an inspired, uplifting, and positive mind.
