“What is the purpose of deliberately generating joy? It is so that we will take full advantage of our present opportunity.”
– Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Joyful Path of Good Fortune
If we do not understand the extraordinary opportunity that this life gives us we will easily waste it. Within our minds lies the potential for real happiness and freedom, truly the fulfillment of all our wishes. In this series we will explore a series of meditations and contemplation designed to help access and harness the power of joy with our minds to really make the most of our lives.
Through talks, guided meditations, discussion and q&a’s, we will learn how to take these extraordinary life-affirming and empowering insights and tools to heart.
