Buddha taught that our human life is very precious because it provides us with a special opportunity to realize our spiritual potential. Through the practice of training the mind we can gain permanent inner peace and freedom from all suffering.

We have countless desires, but no matter how much effort we make we never feel that we have satisfied them. By controlling our desire we can make ourself happy all the time.

Death is the cessation of the connection between our mind and our body. When the body disintegrates at death the mind does not cease. The continuum of our very subtle mind has no beginning and no end.

By gaining understanding of the law of karma we can radically change our life for the better, learn to accept difficult situations and create the causes for our future success and peace of mind.

When we develop a strong wish to abandon the cycle of contaminated rebirth, samsara, this wish is called ‘renunciation’, and it is through developing this wish that we actually enter the path to liberation, or nirvana.
Each class begins with guided breathing meditation, to help settle the mind and let go of distractions.
Sachi is a member of the Teacher Training Program and presently teaches weekly classes at the Esquimalt Recreation Centre on Wednesday evening and Friday noon and at the Centre. Sachi’s background includes experience in human services, community music, and death midwifery.
