Turning Our Mind into an Ally

Wednesdays 7-8pm. June 26 - July 31 (no class on July 10)
this series will be taught by Modern Buddhism Teacher Hannah Kim

“Although living beings wish to be free from suffering,
They run straight towards the causes of suffering
And although they wish for happiness
Out of Ignorance they destroy it like a foe”
Guide to the Bodhisattvas Way of Life

~Shantideva~

In our ordinary life, even though we work very hard to find happiness it remains elusive for us, whereas problems seem to come naturally, without any effort. Since we often develop negative states of mind that easily destroy our happiness, we need to change what we are doing with our mind.  If instead, we can learn how to partner with our own peaceful and positive states of mind, then we will come to understand that our mind can be our most powerful ally and a sincere and reliable friend.

How Karma Colors Our Life

Wednesdays 7-8pm. September 4-18

Buddha’s teachings on karma explain the relationship between our mind, our actions and our experiences. Karma is like gravity; it is not personal, it's’ not singling us out. If we trip and fall, we don’t get angry with gravity. Understanding how karma functions puts us in control of our life. We can learn to transform, and avoid difficulty, thereby creating lasting happiness. Included guided meditation, a talk and time for Q&A.

September 4 - What is Karma?

September 11 - The General Characteristics of Karma

September 18 - Preventing Future Problems
