How To Transform Your Life
Every Sunday, 10:30AM - 12:00PM
This series of classes is based on Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book How to Transform Your Life. This practical manual for daily life shows how we can develop authentic inner peace, overcome daily problems, and bring about positive changes in our life that enable us to experience deep and lasting happiness. Each class consists of guided meditations and clear explanations, as well as an opportunity to ask questions.
EVERY TUESDAY, 7:00PM - 8:30PM
We have so many fears these days: fears for ourselves, our family and friends, and for our world. Sometimes these fears are manifest and sometimes they are beneath the surface, giving rise to anxiety and insecurity. What do we turn to protect us from fear and anxiety? What can we rely upon? According to Buddha’s teachings it is possible to transcend our fears and attain a state of fearlessness. But this can only be accomplished through investigating them and uncovering their source in our own uncontrolled and painful minds.

Letting Go of Insecurity
Saturday, June 16
We all know what it feels like to be insecure. But do we know that it is possible to become completely free from insecurity? It is! Those feelings of insecurity do not reflect our actual nature. The practice of Buddhist meditation enables us to experience directly our pure nature for what it is: limitless potential.
