How to Transform Your Life

A series of classes based on Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s newly published How to Transform Your Life. This practical manual for daily life shows how we can develop authentic inner peace, overcome daily problems and bring about positive changes in our life that enable us to experience deep and lasting happiness.

As part of our ongoing series, How To Transform Your Life, this month we will be focusing on the meditations and practical methods for transforming anger and conflict. By wholeheartedly accepting such difficulties we can use them as the springboard for real transformation. In this way even our challenging relationships are seen as essential for spiritual growth….and we learn how to improve those relationships as well!

Each class consists of guided meditations and clear explanations, as well as an opportunity to ask questions.
