Monday Night Series
Living From the Inside Out: Practical Solutions for Difficult Times

Monday, March 30, 6:30-7:45 PM
(starting April 6, 7-8:15 PM)
with Gen Kelsang Gomlam

(Originally held at at the Urban Ecology Center at Riverside Park, Milwaukee; temporarily livestreaming)

Everybody wants to be happy and we look for it in every area of our life – at work, in our relationships, and in our hobbies and social calendar. However, in our pursuit for happiness, many people find just the opposite: we feel unhappy, depressed and unfulfilled. Sometimes it feels like we’ve done everything right: we’ve got the job, success, car, house, money, family and yet these things did not bring the happiness we thought they would.   

Through teachings and guided meditations, Gen Gomlam will help us explore how we can all cultivate an inner source of happiness that doesn’t depend upon external things. In this way, we can be reliable and authentic source of happiness for ourselves and others.
