This Month’s Class Schedule & Topics
September 2020 – Learning to be Patient
When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations we tend to regard the situation itself as the problem. If we learn to maintain a peaceful mind we can be happy all the time regardless of our circumstances. During this half-day course, we will learn Buddhist techniques to help us respond to difficulties with a positive, peaceful mind. In this way, we will be able to accept painful feelings, overcome minds such as anger and frustration, and discover true inner peace.
