These classes offer simple, practical methods to improve the quality of our life and develop inner peace. Each class consists of two guided meditations and a teaching to help us solve our daily problems, let go of negative minds and find happiness from within our own mind. Even though classes are presented in the form of series, each class is self-contained and therefore can be attended individually or as a series. No pre-registration required.
Mondays • 7-8:30pm

Most of us are looking forward to this time of year when the sun is out, the fans or AC are on and everything looks so colourful! It’s summer and in Canada it does not feel long enough! We book our vacations, make plans, take time to rest and socialize.
How can we guarantee that we will have an enjoyable summer? Who can promise that their summer will go exactly like they want it?
In this series of classes, we will add practical tools to our happiness tool kit to help us make the most of this time of the year through contemplating wisdom advice from Buddha and through meditating.
