Suitable for everyone, these walk-in classes offer simple, practical methods to improve the quality of our lives and develop inner peace. These classes focus on using Buddhist understanding to help us solve our daily problems, let go of negative minds and find the lasting happiness we seek.

Each class includes teaching, guided meditation and an opportunity to ask questions. Although taught as a series (see CLASS TITLES below), each class is self-contained and can be attended individually.

The Art of Positive Thinking

In this series Kelsang Rigden will explore the three principal negative habits of mind (delusions) – attachment, anger & confusion/ignorance – which are the root source of all our unhappiness and inner problems. We will learn how we can gradually reduce their power and let them go. We will also learn how to cultivate positive, peaceful habits of mind – patience, non-attachment and wisdom. We will discover how developing and maintaining these three peaceful and positive minds is both an antidote to delusions, and a source of deep peace of mind, inner resilience and happiness. Through this training in improving our mindfulness, we will discover how we can all gradually increase our inner peace, happiness and well being day-by-day.
