The Key to Happiness

September 3, 10, 17, 24

Everybody wants to be happy but very few people have correctly identified what the causes of happiness and the causes of suffering actually are. Buddha did not impose a set of values or belief system, he simply learned how the mind works within his own experience and discovered the “key” to happiness. In this series of classes we will explore meditations derived from Buddha’s teachings on karma and the mind to help us develop and maintain a happy mind, even amidst the stress and turbulence of modern life.

Finding Peace Within

October 1, 22, 29

November 5, 12

Much of our energy from day to day is spent trying to be satisfied, enjoy life’s pleasures, and avoid problems and disappointment.  Despite the effort we put into these pursuits, our experience of happiness is often difficult to achieve or short-lived.  This series of classes will explore how the nature of genuine happiness is peace of mind. We can learn how to experience it, and how to strengthen our experience of true happiness both in meditation and in our daily life.

Developing Mindfulness

November 19, 26

December 3, 10

Mindfulness is our ability to remember things.  If we are mindful we can stay focused on our daily tasks and accomplish them with ease, whereas if we are distracted we become inefficient and make many mistakes.  In meditation we can strengthen our mindfulness to transform our distracted, agitated mind into a more peaceful and positive one that responds to life’s challenges with kindness, respect, and patience.  This series of classes will emphasize practical training in mindfulness using guided meditation, discussion, and helpful advice.
