Our Sunday class starts with a short guided breathing meditation, a teaching on how to solve our human problems and a concluding meditation to set up your week.

These classes are designed as independent in-person and online “drop-in” classes but greater benefit and understanding naturally arise through coming regularly (see schedule & topics below).

Everyone is welcome!


CLASS SCHEDULE & TOPICS
JANUARY | NEW YEAR, NEW YOU

Start the year with Buddhist wisdom and meditation.  Meeting Dharma, Buddha’s teachings, opens us up to an entirely new life trajectory. It gives us access to profound insights into how we can scientifically change our thoughts in order to change our relationship with yourself and our world.  This translates to real substantial change.

Join us for this four week series (or any individual class) and be prepared to leave with insight and tools to begin changing right now.  In these troubled times, what a meaningful gift for yourself and the world!

January 9: Transform your life by transforming your mind
January 16:  How to use intention to guide the meaning of your life
January 23: How what we pay attention to makes us happy or stressed
January 30: Discrimination: discovering our freedom to see things differently

FEBRUARY TO APRIL | HOW TO CHANGE NEGATIVE PATTERNS OF THOUGHT
Feb 6, 13, 20, 27 | March 6, 13, 20, 27 | April 3

Happiness and suffering are merely states of mind. So if we are to experience the happiness we all long for we must learn how to connect with that state of mind and not the ones that causes us so much pain.

Part of this process entails identifying our negative patterns of thought so that we can begin to learn to let them go. This will allow us to actively replace those painful thoughts with the positive states of mind that lead to happiness.

In this series we will explore how we can identify and let go of such pain-inducing patterns of thought such as anger, jealousy, obsession, anxiety and more. Buddha called such minds ‘delusions’ because they are characterized by exaggeration, which leads to them being both unpeaceful and unreliable. Currently, we believe the harmful stories these minds are telling us, both about ourselves and the world. These stories are wrong.

Using the special meditation on the nature of the mind, we will learn how to recognize early on when we are under the influence of these harmful minds so that we will not entrust ourselves to them, but rather let them go. Changing such negative patterns of thought is hugely liberating and will open us up to a whole new joyful and creative way to experience our lives and our relationships.

February 6: Recognizing Negative Patterns of Thought
