FREEING OUR MIND AND DISCOVERING OUR POTENTIAL
By increasing our understanding of the mind and how it functions, we will understand where true happiness comes from – and how to become more skillful in creating happiness for ourselves and others. This awareness will motivate us to practice the tools Buddha gave us in our daily lives, enabling us to create permanent peace
MAR 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, APR 6, 20 (no class APR 13)
RELATIONSHIPS – AN OPPORTUNITY TO GROW OUR COMPASSION
Many of the difficulties we experience involve our relationships with others – in our family, our workplace, our neighbourhood and in our society at large. We will learn and practice profound meditations that will enable us to cherish others more fully and deeply.
APR 27, MAY 4, 11, 25, JUN 1, 8, 15 (no class MAY 18)
BECOMING OUR OWN PROTECTOR
We have so many fears and challenges in our lives – loneliness, sickness, financial hardships, death and losses of many kinds. Where do we turn for support and strength? By understanding the benefits of relying on Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, we can develop a foundation that will allow us to transform life’s experiences to create more wisdom and peace.
Each class begins with guided breathing meditation, to help settle the mind and let go of distractions.
