Begin your new year by discovering a real treasure – a natural source of joy in your own mind! According to Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Buddhist meditation presents a ‘joyful path leading to a joyful goal.’ In this series of meditation classes we are going to activate the power of joy to improve every facet of our life. In the process we will discover what it really means to be human, and how we can use this life to bring immense joy and meaning to ourself and others.
