Discovering Stillness Within

Stress- Free Living

Feb 3 | 10 | 17

Stress, anxiety, fear, disappointment and confusion: these states of mind are nearly universal experiences in our busy modern life.  However common they may be, they rob us of our ability to enjoy life and experience peace of mind.  Buddha’s timeless teachings offer a simple and profound alternative- if we can retrain our mind to respond to life’s challenges with a peaceful, positive attitude, all our ordinary problems fall away and we can face life with inner strength, stability, and profound peace.  This course will offer practical advice on how we can attain lasting inner peace by changing the quality of our mind.

This series of classes is open to all levels of experience and includes guided meditation, encouraging and practical instruction, and time for discussion.  Everyone is welcome to attend at any time.

Recommended reading: “Transform Your Life” and “How to Solve our Human Problems” by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. These will be available in the branch class book shop.
