Intro to Buddhist Meditation

Problems only arise because we respond to situations with a negative state of mind.  When we become familiar with cultivating a calm and peaceful mind we begin to understand that it is possible to respond to challenging life situations skillfully.

Special Methods for Finding Peace

Although we want to avoid problems and be happy, we can feel confused about how to do this. Buddha’s profound teachings are  designed to help us realize a peaceful and meaningful life. These methods help us develop inner understandings that we can rely on and turn to whenever we are facing challenges or feeling discouraged.

Buddhist Meditation: New Habits for a Kinder World

Harmful habits are hard to break. How do we recognize the harm and introduce new habits of kindness that benefit both ourselves and others?  Buddha’s teachings help us to abandon old habits and engage in actions that guide us to a kinder gentler future.

Living Mindfully, Free of Negativity

With mindfulness we tie our mind to a virtuous object.  A virtuous object is any object that has a positive effect on our mind.  We should try to keep our mind on virtuous objects all the time.

Enjoy Life in the Present Movement

Many of us experience a profound sense of waiting for something to change or improve.  In this course we will learn how to recognize the impermanence of all things.  This special Buddhist wisdom reduces our attachment to the things of this life, and allows us to create happiness and contentment in every moment.
