Sunday Morning Class
The essence of Buddhism is learning to be happy and peaceful and experiencing a more meaningful life. This series of classes will be based on the book, The New Eight Steps to Happiness, a practical manual that shows how we can develop and enhance our mind of loving kindness. Learn step-by-step meditations for solving daily problems and discover the methods through which we can bring about positive changes in our lives that will enable us to experience deep and lasting happiness for ourselves and others.
Drop in for a class or try the whole series! Classes are stand-alone in nature, and include teachings, guided meditations, as well as a chance to discuss & ask questions. They are followed by refreshments in our beautiful shop. No previous experience necessary and you can drop in anytime. Chairs are provided and there are meditation cushions for those who wish to sit on the floor. Everyone welcome! You can attend the course without having the book. Register for a 5-class pass for $40 here.
LIVING A MEANINGFUL LIFE
What is the meaning of our life? How can we use our life to make ourselves and others happier? We can find out the answers to these questions with instructions from Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s New Eight Steps to Happiness.
