Tuesday evenings: Transforming Adversity

Tuesday evenings: Transforming Adversity


Tuesday night classes run throughout the year

7:00 to 8:30 pm


May 7 – 28


Life’s difficulties can be extremely challenging, and as a result, we often feel overwhelmed and are easily disappointed or resentful. These heavy feelings bring us down, and rob us of the  positive energy we need to change our mind for the better, so we can be happy and at peace once more. By learning to view our problems as a teacher, we’ll be encouraged to apply spiritual teachings that help us to transform our mind and thus the situation. 

When we can do this, what we discover, is that we no longer have a ‘problem’.

These uplifting classes will include practical advice, guided meditations, and time to discuss.
