Eights Steps to Training the Mind

with Resident Teacher Elizabeth Muzyka

Why is it so hard to be and stay happy? According to Buddha, it’s not. In fact, it can be done in as few as 8 steps. What it requires is a drastic change in the way we view ourselves and others, as well as in how we respond to the conflicts and hardships that arise in our lives.
Based on the book Eight Steps to Happiness, this series will introduce us to the practice of lojong or training the mind. Each step will show us how to transform our mind from our regular self-orientated perspective into the loving, courageous and wise heart of a Bodhisattva, a fearless person on the path to lasting happiness.

Meditation and Freedom From Painful Emotions

 with Resident Teacher Elizabeth Muzyka

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.
