New Mind in the New Year
Are you searching about for a meaningful New Year’s resolution? Here’s one: This year I will put my mind in some wise, helpful and joy-making places. The rest will follow.
The new year is a symbol of possibility. We do wish to change and for our lives to go in a better direction. But for that to really happen we first need to connect with the potential that already exists within our own minds. The profound tools of transformation at our disposal via Buddhist meditation gives us the ability to become that person we wish to be: peaceful, kinder, more dynamic and confident, happier, more loving.

The Wisdom Approach to Life
Buddha taught that we can lead lives of great joy, purpose and benefit. The key is wisdom, in particular the deeper wisdoms of Buddha’s teachings.
What is the wisdom approach to our families, jobs, entertainments, our bodies and ourselves? How can we integrate these with our spiritual practice so that they become part of our journey towards real fulfillment and enlightenment? In this series we will learn how to bring about this integration… and approach our life with wisdom, compassion, and mindfulness! Everyone welcome.
