Make Life Better

(with meditation)

Can we even imagine what it would feel like if every encounter and every experience we had was a positive one? Yes we can. It would feel fantastic. Do we believe this is possible? Buddha’s teachings and meditations give us a swift and direct method to help us to attain a happiness that we all long for but that we probably believe is not even possible.

During this course, based on the special arrangement of meditations known as lam rim, we will learn how to connect to our potential for inner peace, love and freedom and begin our journey to a happiness we hardly knew existed.
