Online Workshop

Instead of becoming frustrated and upset when life throws unavoidable problems at us, we can use the spiritual practice of meditation to develop a strong and flexible mind.

"Everybody needs to be good-natured with a good heart, because in this way we can solve our own problems as well as those of others, and we can make our human life meaningful."
