Saturday Classes: Peaceful Mind, Mindful Life

Saturday General ProgramBeginning January 31, this season’s Saturday classes will focus on getting to know our mind, our feelings and our wishes. We will learn to meditate and increase our mindfulness day by day so that eventually we will be able to remain peaceful and contented no matter what circumstances surround us.

We don’t want to make you Buddhists—we just want to make you happy!


Overcoming Anger (February 7)

Overcoming AngerAnger is one of the most common and destructive delusions, and it afflicts our mind almost every day. Anger destroys our peace and happiness, and it blocks our spiritual progress.

Join us on to learn how to overcome anger the Buddhist way. Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Dema, will show us how to apply practical methods in our daily life to reduce our anger and finally to prevent it from arising at all.

Drop in, or register online.
