In our ordinary life we all look for protection from problems, difficulties, worry and fear. But, the things we normally turn to for our protection often end up causing us other problems.

A reliable method to find deep inner protection is the practice of going for refuge to the 3 Jewels of Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. In this course through understanding how the practice of refuge works, we will feel confident that the 3 Jewels are a solid and reliable foundation upon which we can begin to build the causes of happiness within our own mind.

You are welcome to attend for the morning or the day.
