The Way Things Really Are:
Create the Life you Want Through Understanding Karma
Buddha’s law of karma explains the relationship between our actions and our experiences. Applying this law to our own lives helps us purify the past, deal positively with present, and create the future we actually want.
We may have heard of the extraordinary benefits of meditation: deep states of inner peace, confidence and improved relationships. We are told we can overcome our anxiety, loneliness, depression, and the repetitive habits that steal our opportunities for happiness. These benefits are real, but in order to access them, we need to meditate regularly with a happy, confident mind.
This four-class series offers an opportunity to explore the practical side of establishing a meditation practice and learn to engage in our practice in such a way as to experience the benefits of meditation for ourselves!
Topics will include:
- How to establish a daily practice
- Using meditation to address our most persistent bad habits
- Creating powerful inner conditions for meditation
- Learning to enjoy our practice
A must for anyone—beginner or otherwise—who wishes to create a regular, productive meditation practice!
