Saturday Workshop

Wisdom for a Happy Life: Half-Day Workshop

With Kadampa Teacher Evelyn Williams 

Saturday, June 8th  |   10am – 1pm

There is nothing more precious than our human life. Having been born as a human being we have immense freedom to accomplish almost anything we want. But what will make us truly happy? What will benefit others most? And when this life is over, what will help us then?
In this workshop, we will explore Buddha’s teachings on our precious human life as a practical method to bring meaning to our life. By doing this we can refresh our focus and learn to make daily activities part of our spiritual practice.

Join us for:

  • Guided meditations
  • Methods to maintain inner peace in daily life
  • Time to discuss the ideas presented.

Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary.

Cost: $20 per person – Drop ins are welcome
