Streamed Online – Classes available on demand until Feb. 5

In this four week series, we will learn how to recognize and reduce the strong tendencies or bad mental habits that can lead to addiction and cause us to feel trapped, confused and powerless.

By learning about our own mind and its actual nature and function, we can begin to gain control over the unhealthy thoughts, wishes and desires and replace them with new positive mental habits.

These practical teachings are suitable for everyone. Classes include guided meditations, advice from Buddha’s teachings and methods to bring the teachings into daily life.

*Although it is very beneficial to attend the entire series, each class is self-contained and drop-ins to any class in the series are welcome.
