4-PART COURSE

Reconnecting with family, friends and our community requires more than sharing a common space, we need to cultivate and share a common joy.  Unlocking our potential for pure happiness will make our renewed relationships even stronger and filled with more love.

In this series of Saturday classes we will look at four ways to bring pure joy, happiness and peace to our interactions with others. By practicing meditations and bringing the essence of them into daily life you can cultivate your unlimited potential!

Creating Profound Gratitude & Repaying Kindness

When we understand the great kindness others have given us we draw closer to others, wish to repay their kindness and discover the endless joy of cherishing others.

The Joy of Rejoicing

Learning to rejoice in the virtuous actions, happiness, good qualities and good fortune of others multiples our merit, our potential for attaining spiritual realizations. In this class we will learn about this joyful practise and develop a wish to engage in it.
