A Happy Heart (Holiday Series)

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


The holiday season can bring up a great range of emotions for all of us - sometimes joyful anticipation, sometimes dread, often a combination of the two! If we bring some of Buddha's practical methods home for the holidays, we'll be able to really enjoy the pleasures, and transform the challenges of being with, or not being with, our close family and friends.

The Wisdom of Letting Go

EVERY TuESDAY, 7:00-8:30PM

Learning to let go is fundamental to making progress along a spiritual path. Often times, it is our own tight grip on our views, opinions, and feelings; people, places and things; and especially our sense of self, that is the cause of our deepest suffering and pain. We cling so tightly to ideas and thoughts that don’t serve us well and hold us back from living our life to its highest potential. Through understanding Buddha’s wisdom teachings, we’ll learn to open up to a world of possibilities and come to a deep sense of knowing that letting go is one of the safest and most beneficial things we can do for ourselves and others.
