The Power of Happiness:
Overcoming irritation and disappointment

There are countless situations in daily life where we can easily get annoyed, irritated or disappointed. This can often lead to feeling discouraged, angry or resentful. In this series, we will learn to recognize what is happening in the mind at those times, so we can then make decisions based on wisdom and compassion how to proceed. With simple meditation practice, we can learn to transform a negative state of mind to a peaceful, positive one. Through gaining familiarity with virtuous, peaceful minds, we will begin to experience more and more the power of happiness within our own mind.

Each class includes guided meditations, teachings and practical advice from Buddha’s teachings and time for discussion and questions. Drop in to one or all classes in the series.  Although it is beneficial to attend the entire series, each class is self-contained.  Everyone welcome!
