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.
Nurturing Your Pure Nature
EVERY TuESDAY, 7:00-8:30PM
In this series, perfect both for newcomers and those more experienced, we will explore the relationship between meditation, happiness, and a deeper sense of purpose in our lives. Buddhist meditation teaches us how to access and maintain inner joy, even when experiencing difficulties. Nurturing the pure nature of our mind opens us up to recognizing and identifying with the potential for happiness, love and other good qualities that exist within each and every one of us. This empowers us with a sense of purpose in our life, an inner drive to actualize our unbelievable potential so that we can be of real benefit to our family, friends and everyone throughout our world. The emphasis will be on how to integrate our practice of training the mind with every aspect of our life: work, family, friends, down-time, etc.
