Choose Happiness

Choose Happiness

A Half-Day Class

Saturday, April 21, 10am – 12:30 pm

Since happiness is a state of mind, it follows that the causes of happiness must also lie within our mind. This is true as well for unhappiness; although it seems to come from outside the mind, if we check, it begins in and develops from negative states of mind. We can choose to maintain inner happiness and learn to increase it, and we can also choose gradually to let go of negative states of mind. In order to do this, we shift our attention towards what happens within our mind and learn to apply practical skills. These skills don’t develop naturally, but are learned through meditation. Meditation is the very method by which we can learn how to choose happiness.

These practical skills can then gradually be applied in daily life, and greatly improve the quality of our daily life. Eventually they can give great meaning to our life by enabling us to help those we love.

This half-day class will include clear and practical teachings about how to increase happiness within our mind, and how to let go of negativity. Practical experience through meditation will be included, and there will be time for questions and discussion.

This course is especially suited for beginners. No previous experience of meditation or Buddhism is necessary. Everyone is welcome.
