Find freedom from unhappy minds and experience joy and inner peace

In modern times we face many challenges and difficulties in our lives and our daily experience is often stressful and unrewarding. By learning to integrate the ancient wisdom of Buddha’s teachings into our daily life, we can find practical solutions to many of our everyday problems and discover real meaning in every moment of our life.

Course Topics

Current Series – Conquering Anger & Conflict
This series will focus on the meditations and practical methods for transforming anger and conflict. By learning to wholeheartedly accept difficulties we can use them as the springboard for real transformation. In this way even challenging people and situations can be used to empower our spiritual growth – and we will also find solutions to many of our daily problems.

Oct 18 – Living for Today
Oct 25 – A New Day, a New Person
