(free for members)

In October, the Sunday morning Oak Park class continues exploring the topic, "Learning How to be Happy."


Although everyone wants to be happy, sometimes we find it difficult to be happy even for a whole day.  However, Buddha taught that everyone has a profound inner potential to experience lasting, pure happiness, which we can develop through spiritual practices like meditation and mindfulness.


Using the celebrated meditation manual, How to Transform Your Life, by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, we will learn step by step how to let go of anxiety, frustration and other problems, and how to develop greater levels of lasting peace and happiness.


Each class will include practical instruction, guided meditations, and time for questions.  No previous experience is needed; absolutely everyone is welcome.  Drop in at any time.
