Our negative states of mind and addictive tendencies are sometimes so overwhelming to us that we call them our “inner demons”. Although we may feel controlled by these difficult states of mind, we can learn to find freedom from within and defeat these demons.

Buddha’s teachings on meditation and creating happiness from the inside provide us with real methods for transforming every challenging state of mind into the spiritual path. By applying these teachings to our lives, we will find a profound peace and inner strength that enable us to triumph over even the most destructive negative habits and states of mind and finally experience real inner peace. (using “freedom from within” twice seems too much)

In this course strategies that aid in protecting our minds against depression, addiction and compulsive habits will be presented.

Everyone is welcome to attend; no prior experience with Buddhism or meditation is necessary to benefit from this course.
