Finding Joy and Meaning on a Spiritual Path

Everyone longs for happiness.  Yet a stable experience of happiness continues to be so elusive. Should we just settle for “happiness now and then?”

Alice Fox – Upper West Side meditation teacher

Buddha says “No.” As it turns out, each of us has the capacity to tap into an unceasing source of deep satisfaction and joy which will give great meaning to our lives. Through meditation practice we can locate this source, connect with it…and remain there.

This series of classes offers fundamental teachings on the Buddhist path and practical meditations and instructions for putting those teachings into practice in our daily lives.
