How many of our daily thoughts are consumed with our own worries and the challenges of those around us?  Buddha’s teachings present radically different ways of approaching the problems we encounter in our everyday lives.  By addressing our difficulties with a calm mind, a different view and with new tools that create new habits, we can begin to experience a life with fewer problems and more space for happiness.

In this 4-part series,  Sachi will lead us through these “new tools” in a way that will allow us to incorporate them in our lives.

Q. Do I need to be a Buddhist to attend?
No. Anyone can learn basic meditation and experience the benefits that come from having a peaceful mind.
Q. Do I need to have any experience?
No. Everyone is welcome, including beginners. All you need is the wish to improve yourself and the quality of your life.
Q. Do I need to book in advance?

You need to book online to attend.  Typically for Live-Streamed classes registration stays open up until the class actually starts.  You may then use the link you generate for both the live class and any video replay (which will be available 2 to 12 hours after the class ends).

No, please feel free to attend any of the classes you wish. Each class is taught in such a way that if you only attend one class, you will derive benefit from it.
