Upcoming Classes & Dates

Freedom from Craving and Attachment: April 30; May 7, 21

In this series we will explore meditations and mindfulness practises for daily life that will enable us to become free of craving and attachment. We will learn how to identify craving and attachment as it arises in our minds, and learn how to let it go. We will explore how meditation enables us to connect to and develop, a deep and natural source of inner peace, happiness and well-being within our own mind.

Meditations for a Clear Mind: May 28; June 4,11, 18

Our mind’s true nature is like a clear sky, but so often it’s clouded by our busy, uncontrolled (and sometimes negative) thoughts. Learn how you can experience the inner peace and joy of a clear mind through simple meditations. Everyone is welcome!
