10:30 am – noon
Sunday morning meditations
We all know that happiness is a state of mind. When the mind is peaceful, we are happy. When that peace of mind disappears, so does our happiness. How can we practice in daily life so that we can continue to create the positive experiences we want now and in the future? What kinds of thoughts, intentions and actions do “really happy people” have?
In this series, we will explore the obstacles to pure dharma practice and recognize that by removing these mental obstacles, we can experience a sense of freedom, strength and confidence in our daily life. By developing a deep inner stability of wisdom that can’t be moved by the changing conditions in daily life, we will stop getting caught up in the transient, temporary appearances and will focus on our goals, both temporary and ultimate, with a happy mind alone.
