Meditation, Joy, and Inner Purpose

In this series, perfect both for newcomers and those more experienced, we will explore the relationship between meditation, happiness, and a deeper sense of purpose in our lives.

Buddhist meditation teaches us how to access and maintain inner joy, even when we’re experiencing difficulties. Connecting to the natural joy within our mind opens us up to recognizing and identifying with our potential for happiness, love and other good qualities. This naturally empowers us with a strong sense of purpose, an inner drive to actualize our unbelievable potential so that we can of be real benefit to our family, friends and everyone throughout our world. The emphasis will be on how to integrate our practice of training the mind with every aspect of our life: work, family, friends, down-time etc.
