  • with Buddhist Monk Gen Samten Kelsang

    Happiness is not some far distant goal but is something we can discover today - right here and now. The secret of happiness lies in our ability to cultivate acceptance, joy, and gratitude. By building our life around these three core emotions we will discover happiness and meaning in every area of our life. These experiential and practical classes will reveal how we can use Buddhist meditation and positive thinking to transform every moment of our daily life.

    Drop-ins are welcome. Open to everyone. Classes include guided meditation, practical advice on integrating meditation into your life, and discussion with like-minded people. Classes are held year-round. Visit our website for more information. $10 per class.
