An End to Conflict: Teachings on Karma & Compassion

Sunday Mornings | 10:30am– 12:00pm

with Resident Teacher Elizabeth Muzyka

$15 | Free for Supporting Members
Each class is self contained, pre-registration not required.

When problems arise in our lives and people behave badly, we typically become angry, place blame, and sometimes react in harmful ways. With a deep understanding of karma, we can quickly drop our painful minds and begin to act thoughtfully and skillfully. But karma is one of those terms that we often throw around without fully knowing what it is about.  Do we really understand it? Let alone believe in it?

An understanding of this law of cause and effect is not only useful for helping us make good decisions in times of conflict, but is critical to our own present and future happiness. In this series we will learn special methods for freeing ourselves of the negativity that is the cause of all unpleasant situations that arise in our own lives. Yes, that’s correct. All of them.

  Aug 6               The Nuts and Bolts of Karma

  Aug 13               How Our Anger Harms Us

  Aug  20              Ceasing the Blame Game

  Aug 27             Action vs Reacting—Purifying Karma

Meditation and Freedom From Painful Emotions

Wednesdays | 7:00 – 8:30pm

 with Resident Teacher Elizabeth Muzyka

$15 | Free for Supporting Members
Each class is self contained, pre-registration not required.

Can we even begin to Imagine a life completely free from anger and jealousy and desirous attachment and all the other painful states of mind that cause us so much suffering? With a well-targeted meditation practice, we can absolutely diminish (and even extinguish) these toxic minds.

In this series, we will explore Buddha’s teachings and apply them to understand what it is that makes these painful minds tick. We will discover how it is that they arise, and in so doing learn the methods to completely eliminate them from our mind. These practical methods will help all us all to experience a deep and satisfying mental freedom.

This series is perfect both for those who are new to meditation and for those who wish to delve deeper.
