Learn to Meditate in Half a Day: Living Joyfully
April 15 | 10am – 1pm
With the non-stop pace of life, a schedule full of commitments and a never-ending to-do list, we often feel that downing a cup of coffee, gritting our teeth and pushing ourselves forward is the most effective way to get through the day. For people of the modern world, Buddha taught the “Perfection of Effort”, which reveals how we can skilfully accomplish our goals and engage in all our activities joyfully, without pushing.
By learning and then applying these methods into your life, you will find it easier and easier to experience inner peace amidst the busyness of modern living and naturally benefit the people with whom you interact.
Cost: $20 per person

Meditation, Happiness & Inner Peace
March 23 | 7-8:30pm
What is the mind? How can we use it to create positive changes in our life? Where do negative minds come from and how can we reduce and abandon them? How can we improve our concentration and other peaceful minds? How can we transform our mind and our self? What is an enlightened mind? We will answer these questions, and many more, all while learning to meditate in depth on the beautiful and blissful nature of our pure mind.
Each class costs $10 per person and consists of guided meditation, practical advice for daily life and time to discuss with like-minded people.
