Tuesday evenings: The Power to be Happy

Tuesday evenings: The Power to be Happy


October 2-30

7:00 to 8:30 pm

The more we understand our mind, the more power we have to change it. Buddha said that we need to recognize, reduce, and finally abandon our negative states of mind and learn to cultivate positive states of mind. Patience and loving kindness for example, always give rise to inner peace, while jealousy and anger always cause pain and problems for ourselves and others. Once we become familiar with transforming our mind by changing it from negative to positive, many of our daily problems diminish and we gain the confidence to deal constructively with difficult people and situations.

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