August series:
The Confidence to Change

Anyone can learn to meditate. In these classes, we will discover our enormous potential for happiness and some ways to cultivate it through the practice of meditation. Our mind is usually like a balloon in the wind - blown here and there by external circumstances. If things go well, our mind is happy, but if they go badly, it immediately becomes unhappy. In this way, we are very vulnerable to suffering.

 

By training in meditation, we create an inner space and clarity that enable us to control our mind, regardless of external circumstances. In this way, we gain the confidence to change our unhelpful habits and replace them with dynamic, creative solutions.

Learn to Let Go and Move On

Thursdays, 7-8:15pm

Cost: $12 (Free for members)

We often have trouble letting go of painful feelings resulting from past events. These negative feelings affect the way we respond to our current life situation, ourself and others. We often blame the situations, ourselves or other people for our problems and then remain trapped in a state of hurt. Through training in mindfulness and meditation and practicing the antidote to these problems, we can finally find release from unhappiness, leaving us with a tremendous feeling of relief and joy.

During this meditation series, we will be introduced to practical methods with which we can let go of the past and move on to a brighter future. Each class will consist of guided meditations and teachings.
