Everyone is welcome!

Dec 13: The four immeasurables

The Power of Giving

December 20

Time: 7:00 – 8:15pm 

Cost: $15 (free for supporting members)

Giving is essential to Buddhism. Giving includes charity, or giving material help to people in want. It also includes giving spiritual guidance to those who seek it and loving kindness to all who need it. However, one’s motivation for giving to others is at least as important as what is given.

Everyone is welcome!

December 27

Time: 7:00 – 8:15pm 

Cost: $15 (free for supporting members)

Enhance the meaning and enjoyment of this holiday season through increasing your appreciation of the kindness of others. Everything we have and everything we enjoy, including our very life, is due to the kindness of others. There are so many reasons to feel grateful, which is why one of the easiest ways to feel happy is to cultivate gratitude. When we think about the ways in which our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being depend on the support of others, we recognize the web of kindness that connects us all. And when we feel grateful, it gives us a sense of joy and connection with others.

Everyone is welcome!

Science of Happiness: A Buddhist Perspective

January 3

Time: 7:00 – 8:15pm 

Cost: $15 (free for supporting members)

In ordinary society, science is concerned with a systematic approach of observation and experimentation to understand the world around us. Buddha’s teachings show us how to understand the inner science of the mind. This evenings class taught by Resident Teacher Kelsang Khacho will share the scientific methods for training the mind taught by Buddha 2600 years ago. By gently training in the meditations that calm the mind, we gradually become more peaceful, confident and happy. With this positive nature, we can bring true benefit to the world around us.

Everyone is welcome!
