Discover the Hero Within: Practical Tips for Self-Improvement
From time to time we all want to fulfill our highest aspirations for benefiting ourself, our family, and the world at large. During this class series, you will learn practical methods and meditations to increase your power to solve your own and others’ problems through developing the capacity of the mind.
By following in the footsteps of previous fearless and altruistic meditators, you can discover the hero within. Everyone welcome.
Every class will begin with a brief introduction, followed by a guided breathing meditation and the Liberating Prayer. After meditation, there will be a short teaching and time for Q&A.
Where to Find Us at the Circular Church
If you are driving, follow Queen Street from Church Street. Look for a walled parking lot on your right halfway up the block. If you get to Meeting Street, you’ve gone too far. There is a large round mirror on the top of the wall at the entrance to the parking lot which will help you notice the lot. Once you park, you will need to walk into this lot; however, parking is no longer allowed in this lot and you can be towed if you park here. There is metered parking on the street and there is a parking garage on Cumberland Street. Our classroom is in the glass building on the second floor. Come through the gate and under the building. The stairs are on the left.
If you are walking, from Meeting Street you may be able to enter the Circular Church Graveyard if the gate is open. If so, come to the right of the church to the back building. Our classroom is on the second floor of the glassed-in area. The steps are to the right if you are facing the building. If the gate to the graveyard is closed, come around the corner to Queen Street and enter the walled parking lot on the left-hand side of the street. There is a large round mirror on the top of the wall which will help you notice the lot. Walk to the back of the lot, our classroom is in the glass building to your left. You will need to walk through the gate and under the building. From here, the steps are on your left.
