How to Thrive: Buddhist Lessons for Living Fearlessly in Troubled Times

This class is offered in-person only

The new year brings new hope and new promise. But how do we make that promise a reality when we are living in troubled times? Is it possible to be happy during such times? Yes, it is. In fact, if we want to be of greatest benefit both to ourselves and others, it is essential that we train in authentic happiness. For this express purpose, Buddha presented a special set of practices known as ‘training the mind”. These meditations are especially powerful in these challenging times. The heart of the practice is learning to transform adverse conditions into our mind training, responding to difficulties with a special wisdom and skill so that we let go of our self-centered, small-minded fearful mind. Instead, we open our heart with love and compassion and in this way learn to live confidently and fearlessly.

Based on the thousand-year-old famous Buddhist poem, Eight Verses of Training the Mind, this series, through talks and guided meditations, will take us on step-by-step journey to ever-expanding horizons and experiences of authentic, peaceful, and stable happiness.
