LOVE WITHOUT BORDERS

Saturday, February 17, 2018
11am - 1pm
Includes guided meditation, teaching, and discussion

We naturally seek love throughout our life. It is the source of our greatest joy, and is the best way to solve our problems. But to reap these benefits, it is essential that we learn to distinguish between love and attachment. While love brings only good results, attachment brings only problems such as craving, jealousy, dependence, and conflict. In this workshop we will explore Buddha's simple and practical methods to avoid attachment, and develop a pure and lasting love for everyone we meet.

Each workshop includes guided meditation, teaching, and time for questions. Everybody welcome!


OVERCOMING DEPRESSION

Saturday, March 24, 2018
11am - 1pm
Includes guided meditation, teaching, and discussion

Everyone at some time experiences feelings of depression or anxiety. These feelings can lead us to believe that we are isolated from everyone else and can no longer find joy in our life. In this workshop, we will look at how to use practical Buddhist methods and understanding to dissolve depression, worry, anxiety, and stress, and open the doorway to a new experience of life.

Each workshop includes guided meditation, teaching, and time for questions. Everybody welcome!


THE PEACE OF CONCENTRATION

Saturday, April 21, 2018
11am - 1pm
Includes guided meditation, teaching, and discussion

In our modern world, we have so many distractions that it is rare to enjoy even a few moments of mental peace. However, by learning how to train in concentration, we can keep a peaceful, focused, and open mind — even during our most chaotic days. With this new-found concentration we will be able to significantly improve not only our meditation, but also our overall happiness and well-being.

Each workshop includes guided meditation, teaching, and time for questions. Everybody welcome!


TRUE KINDNESS

Saturday, May 19, 2018
11am - 1pm

Our actions of kindness have the power to transform our everyday experience. By avoiding actions that harm others, and engaging in actions that benefit them, we can solve our own problems as well as those of others, and we can make our life meaningful. In this workshop, learn how to make true kindness part of your everyday experience — and reap immeasurable benefits.
