Freedom from Negativity: How to Overcome Negative States of Minds

Freedom from Negativity:  How to Overcome Negative States of Minds

Everyone would like to be peaceful and happy all the time, but our negative states of mind frequently interfere with our inner peace.  How do we identify and overcome states of mind such as anger or unwanted compulsive habits?  During this series of classes derived from the ancient wisdom of Buddhism, learn to recognize and find inner freedom some of our most common negative states of mind.  Everyone is welcome.

Class Format

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

Enter from Queen Street and go to the far end of the parking lot behind the new addition to the Church.  The class is held on the second floor; look for the signs pointing you in the right direction.  Parking is free, even though there’s a sign saying you need to pay; Circular has reserved parking spaces at the end of the lot.
