How to Solve Our Human Problems
Mondays 6:30-8:00 PM Beginning September 9

at the Urban Ecology Center at Riverside Park | 1500 E Park Place

with Modern Buddhist Nun Gen Kelsang Gomlam

 

In this busy world, our experiences of happiness are fleeting and short-lived, while inner peace eludes us completely. We want happiness and freedom from problems, but problems keep coming. This series of classes will be based on the book, The How To Solve Our Human Problems, a practical manual on Buddha’s popular teaching on the Four Noble Truths. Through teachings and guided meditations, Gen Kelsang Gomlam will help us learn practical methods we can use right now to bring about the positive and lasting changes we long for.

 

Drop in for a class or try the whole series! Classes are stand-alone in nature, and include teachings, guided meditations, as well as a chance to discuss & ask questions.
