Monday Nights: Healing from the Inside Out

In-person classes begin May 10! You must pre-register as an in-person attendee; limit is 12 in-person students.

Buddha’s teachings offer us deep insight into our mind, and show how an understanding of its nature and functions can be used practically in every day experience to improve our lives. Each week we will learn practical methods for developing and maintaining a light, positive mind, by recognizing and abandoning states of mind that harm us, and replacing them with peaceful and beneficial ones. Everyone is welcome to this insightful and powerful series.
