When our mind is free from anxious and scattered thoughts, worries and negativity, we are actually happy. How can we experience that mental freedom and make it last?

In this series, we will learn how to simplify our life through the practice of meditation, learning to focus on what brings us joy and inner peace. By developing our own wisdom and relying on Buddha’s time-tested methods and advice, we can begin to enjoy a more peaceful, connected and fulfilling life.

Each class includes guided meditation and brief advice from Buddha’s teachings. Since these drop-in classes are designed both as a series and as stand-alone classes, you are welcome to attend any time. No prior experience or commitment required.

Participants can ask questions during the series via an online document. There will also be a live Q&A midway through the series. Information on both will be shared upon registration.

April 15th marks the anniversary of Buddha Shakyamuni demonstrating the attainment of enlightenment in 589 B.C.E. This is an extremely important day in the Buddhist calendar because our actions are 100,000 times more powerful than on other day

 Buddha taught that everyone has the potential for enlightenment. When we become an enlightened person we will attain an inner light of wisdom that is completely free from all mistaken appearance. Through this wisdom, we will experience the extraordinary joy and happiness of permanent inner peace. Our mind of love will naturally bestow this mental peace on everyone we meet and we will be able to guide others to the everlasting happiness of enlightenment.
Everyone is welcome.

Why is our life like a rollercoaster ride, experiencing ups and downs without choice? We are all just trying to find some happiness and avoid pain and suffering, yet frustration and worry seem to fill our day without invitation. Buddha taught that our way of viewing our world, as something separate from our mind, causes us to become attached to some of the objects in our life and to develop aversion to others.

In this series, we will learn to recognize how our attachment to the comforts of this life actually cause us pain, anxiety and disappointment.  By learning to access and experience our own source of inner peace, we will find a deep, stable happiness that cannot be disturbed by external conditions.

Each class includes guided meditation and brief advice from Buddha’s teachings. Since these drop-in classes are designed both as a series and as stand-alone classes, you are welcome to attend any time. No prior experience or commitment required.
