    We all have a wish to be happy and avoid suffering. Throughout our lives, we travel many different paths driven by this desire: career, relationships, home, vacations, etc. But ultimately, these external paths do not yield the results we seek.

    During this introductory Dharma Talk and meditation session, we will discuss the internal paths that can lead to discovering real happiness and a more meaningful life.

    Location: This event will be offered in-person at Beverly Public Library (Barnet Gallery), 32 Essex Street in Beverly, MA.

    Tim Hogarty is a long-time student and practitioner of the New Kadampa Tradition of Buddhism. He provides practical advice on how to integrate a spiritual path into “everyday” life. Tim is currently in the Teacher Training Program at KMC Boston. Tim frequently makes the commute to KMC Boston to help with special events particularly with the sound desk and to fill in as a guest teacher.

    Tim lives locally on the North Shore, and is an avid gardener and cook. Enjoys walks with his dog, Boo.

    Have you ever found yourself trying to come up with strategies in order to avoid being alone? We are not going to change the fact that sometimes we actually are alone. What we are going to look at in this meditation workshop is why we suffer from it.

    It turns out feeling lonely has nothing to do with having people around us. Something else is going on. And we can do something about it.

    During this meditation workshop with Gen Khedrub we will explore some practical methods to empower ourself so the next time we are alone, we will have tools to apply, helping us to shift our experience of solitude, until we can, step by step, learn to transform the way we relate to it, and to ourself.
