Buddha’s Guide to Giving

‘Tis the Season to give. And while giving is a true cause of joy – the first of six perfections that Buddha taught – around the holidays it can often feel like a source of worry and stress. This is especially so when we become hyper-focused on the outward or physical act of giving versus mental one, which is a simple opening of the heart.
Buddha taught four particular types of giving which we can be engaging in year round, as well as the most meaningful intention to guide our giving in order to make it a perfect act. When we give as Buddha taught, we make ourselves happy as well as others and are left feeling enriched instead of depleted, wealthier vs poorer. What a wonderful opportunity the holidays provide for us to cultivate a mind that is a cause of healing and true peace on earth!
  • Nov 22         No class – Happy Thanksgiving
  • Nov 29        Connecting to our Highest Potential through the Perfection of Giving
  • Dec 6          Giving Material Things and Good Advice
  • Dec 13        Giving Fearlessness and Friendship
  • Dec 20       Transforming the Holidays through Giving Love
  • Dec 27       No Class –  Holiday Break
  • Jan 6         Resolutions for Happiness

Each class will consist of guided meditations and clear explanations, as well as an opportunity to ask questions. Everyone welcome!
