Orleans – Weekly classes on Wednesdays, until June 26


Weekly Meditation classes in Orleans:

Wednesday nights, 7pm-8:30pm
Orleans Public Library, 1705 Orleans Boulevard

These evening classes will introduce you to guided meditations and practical advice which will help you to deal with life’s problems, and to become the positive and happy person you’d like to be. Through training in meditation and special ways of thinking, you’ll discover within yourself the potential we all share to experience real and lasting happiness from within.

Each month, we’ll focus on a different topic in our weekly classes; for the month of January the topic will be:

Dealing with Difficult Emotions

Each day we seem to experience unwanted emotions such as worry, anger, and depression. We try to distract ourself, or to push the feeling away, but these approaches never seem to relieve the mental pain and discomfort for very long. Buddha taught that positive ways of thinking, developing patience, love and wisdom, are the lasting solutions to these uncomfortable states of mind. Through familiarity and effort, we will gradually begin to feel happier and more peaceful, and as a result many of our daily problems subside.

Each class will include practical advice, guided meditations, and time to discuss.
