Do you feel like you’re wandering aimlessly through life? Even when things are going well do you feel dissatisfied and unfulfilled? What about your relationships — are they satisfying and harmonious, or up and down like a yo-yo?

While our day-to-day experiences might differ, we all have this in common: we want to feel happy and content all the time and for many of us, this remains elusive.

More than two thousand years ago, Buddha shared profound insights that comprised a step-by-step journey to inner peace and happiness. In our next series of weekly meditation classes, we’ll explore this journey and how to unify it with our busy modern lives.

Each class includes 2 guided meditations and a teaching.  Afterwards there will be an opportunity to ask questions. Suitable for beginners and those more advanced. Attend any or all of the classes - each one is self-contained. Everybody is welcome!

These classes take place once-a-month on Thursday afternoons, at the Perth & District Library, 30 Herriott Street in Perth Ontario. The classes take place in the Common Room, which is on the first floor of the library.

Class Schedule - the first Thursday of each month, from 12:30-1:45pm:

Thurs. Feb. 1 - Happiness and suffering are states of mind

Thurs. March 7 - Problems can be opportunities for spiritual growth

Thurs. April 4 - It’s possible to see kindness in everyone

Thurs. May 2 - Our world depends upon our mind (which is not the brain)

Thurs. June 6 - We are abiding in a dream

Thurs. July 4 - Letting Go of Overthinking

The classes on April 4, May 2 & June 6 will be taught by Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Thekchen, who is a senior Teacher in the New Kadampa Tradition. He has been a Kadampa Buddhist monk and Teacher under the guidance of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche for more than 25 years. He is well known for his ability to present Buddha's teachings in a simple, practical and often humorous way, making them easy to put into practice in everyday life.

As conscientious Dharma practitioners, we should observe our own shortcomings instead of being preoccupied with those of other people.
