 How to Transform Your Life through Meditation

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 things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the mind. If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive or peaceful mind they would not be problems for us, indeed we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development. Based upon the inspiring book How to Transform Your Life- A Blissful Journey by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, we will explore basic meditation techniques and Buddha’s advice on how we can reduce our negative states of mind and discover a sustainable source of contentment and peace from within through the practice of meditation.

How to Solve Our Human Problems

Wednesdays | 7:00 – 8:30pm

Negative states of mind, such as uncontrolled desire and anger create endless problems for ourselves and others and prevent us from fulfilling our deepest wishes. Buddha’s popular teaching on the Four Noble Truths offers a clear and simple solution guiding us to the oasis of peace within our hearts. Based upon the inspiring book How to Solve Our Human Problems by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche we will explore how to recognize the painful mind of anger and learn skillful techniques to train in remaining more balanced, flexible and peaceful in the midst of difficult situation and conflicts.
