Life is filled with adversities.

Every day, we are faced with challenges ranging from the uncertainty of sickness to difficult relationships to losing the people we love. How can we find meaning and growth from these seemingly painful situations? Buddha taught the truth about suffering, its causes and how to transform suffering into profound and peaceful states of mind that lead to actual freedom from suffering, permanently.

In this series, we will learn how to solve our daily problems and difficulties through the practice of meditation.

Classes build as a series but each one stands alone, and drop-ins are welcome.
