Once a month we hold this introductory course designed especially for beginners. In this course you will learn meditation and the Buddhist approach to training the mind. Applying these methods in your everyday life will lead to happiness and a sense of purpose and harmony in your relationships. This is a beginner course open to everyone. Dress comfortably. Cushions and chairs are available.
We all want to be happy, but how can we do it? We can do it by practicing Buddha’s Teachings, which are scientific methods for happiness. Our problems can’t be solved by hiding from them, but if we can discover their origins we can easily reverse them into meaningful ways of thinking.
Buddha’s teachings, the Dharma, help us to solve our problems and find happiness from within, which is what we really want. In this beginner course we will explore some of these ideas in a lighthearted accessible way with emphasis on practical application.
