Meditation & Buddhism for daily life

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.
After class, join us in the community area for refreshments and informal discussion with the teacher and other students.

A Wind of Change – Mindful Living

We all face many changes in our life, some expected or planned, and some unwanted. We often change things and situations in our life and yet still remain unfulfilled afterwards. At other times, we feel stuck in a fixed external situation and in unhelpful ways of thinking. Rather than creating the life we want, we settle for coping with the life we feel we have. Understanding the law of karma is a fundamental wisdom that can help us accept what occurs to us and guide our actions in a direction that will bring positive changes that will bear fruits of happiness. Buddha’s teachings on karma and the ultimate nature of reality: emptiness, give us the tools to begin bringing about this transformation here and now.
