We generally believe that external conditions such as food, friends, cars, and money are the real causes of happiness, and as a result we devote nearly all our time and energy to acquiring these. Superficially it seems that these things can make us happy, but if we look more deeply we shall see that they also bring us a lot of suffering and problems.
Buddha's teachings reveal how we can have a meaningful life by understanding the causes of happiness and suffering, and use that knowledge to solve our everyday problems and the problems of others.
Classes consist of guided meditations combined with short teachings. Everyone is welcome and no meditation experience is necessary.
Sunday mornings at 9:30.
With American Buddhist monk Kelsang Wangpo. $10 course fee (free for members)
