The Happiness Course
Everyone wants to be happy but so few people actually are. We may not even believe that lasting happiness is possible. Buddha’s teachings give us a swift and direct method to help us to attain the happiness that we all long for, and that is our actual nature.
During this course, based on the special arrangement of meditations known as lam rim, we will learn how to connect to our potential for inner peace, love and freedom and begin our journey to a happiness we hardly knew existed. Everyone welcome.

How to Understand the Mind
A new series based on Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s extraordinary book, How to Understand the Mind. What is the mind? How does it work to cognize objects? Where do negative minds come from? How can we reduce and abandon them? How can we improve our concentration and other peaceful minds? How can we transform our mind and our self? What is an enlightened mind? We will answer these questions, and many more, all while learning to meditate in depth on the beautiful and blissful nature of our pure mind.
