About the Class
Many people suffer from feelings of fear and constant anxiety or are simply overwhelmed by the stress and demands of everyday life. To discover peace and happiness in the midst of our daily life we need to learn to live fearlessly by meeting the challenges of our daily life with an open heart filled with compassion and wisdom. We can cultivate these inner qualities and transform our life by applying the special scientific methods taught by Buddha. This course will focus on providing simple and practical meditation techniques to solve our problems, enjoy inner peace, and discover a freedom that gives us lasting meaning and happiness in our lives.
Meditations will be guided, advice shared and time for discussion and Q & A.Everyone is welcome. No experience necessary.
