Classes in August/September: Joyful Minds

In order to benefit from Dharma, we need to practise it with a calm and joyful mind.  Having a joyful mind means that we can relax, and be like a child at play. This means that we can be both content and focused, while trying to develop positive intentions and actions.

In these drop-in classes, we will explore how to develop several different types of joyful mind. We’ll learn that these minds can help us to develop and maintain positive motivations with courage, but at the same time with lightness. As an added benefit, they will allow us to let go of negative minds of worry or discouragement.

August 21:   Mind of giving: material things

August 28:   Mind of giving: Dharma, fearlessness

Sept. 4:   Rejoicing: in others' positive actions and good fortune

Sept. 11:   No class - Post Summer Festival Retreat, Clear Light of Bliss

Sept. 18:   Rejoicing: in our own positive actions and good fortune

Sept. 25:   Joyful effort: overcoming laziness

Oct. 2:   Joyful effort: methods for increasing effort
