Happiness and suffering are states of mind, and so their main causes are not to be found outside the mind. If we want to be truly happy and free from suffering, we must learn how to control our mind.

with Chris Gharbi

We are all searching for ways to make our mind more peaceful. Meditation is a great tool to accomplish this, but we may be unsure how to do it, or how to direct our thoughts. In this series we will learn what it means to meditate, and the beneficial objects upon which to focus our mind. Through gaining a deep understanding of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book Joyful Path of Good Fortune, we will learn to develop an enjoyable meditation practice that will bring us inner peace.

Responding Creatively to Conflict

Creativity.jpg

Offered in march in Millburn Mall and Ridgewood

In situations of conflict, we easily become angry. We rely upon anger, as if it were a trusted friend, to ‘win’ our battles. However, anger limits us and leaves a trail of painful feelings. On the other hand, the creative mind of patience opens us to options. In this series, we learn to understand and meditate on patience. We will discover how meditation helps us to find peaceful solutions. Appropriate for beginners and those with prior experience of meditation.
