This drop-in meditation class offers practical methods to solve our daily problems of unpleasant feelings through Buddhist teachings and meditations. Learn how to develop an experience of happiness and inner peace. No previous experience is necessary. Everyone is welcome!

Buddha said: “ If you want to be happy, learn to cultivate a peaceful mind. There is no other way. ” By transforming our mind, we transform our life, and come to realize that happiness is within our grasp. Happiness is not outside our mind but something we need to cultivate for ourselves, otherwise we’ll never find it. This series of classes is inspired by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s book, How to Transform Your Life.
