The Art of Positive Thinking

Sept 4, 11, 18

Negative thinking can be a strong habit which brings us down and prevents us from living a happy, fulfilling life. 

If we understand the power of the mind to create our experience we can learn to transform our mental state from negative to positive through meditation. We can then gain the ability to maintain positive wisdom-based attitudes in our daily life and activities.  In this way we can radically solve our problems and create causes for lasting happiness.  

Discover through the practical timeless wisdom of Buddhist meditation how to apply positive thinking to your own life right now.  Open to all levels of experience.

The Healing Power of Meditation

Oct 9, 16, 23, 30

Our mind has the potential to be our greatest healer. So much of the stress and tension we normally experience comes from our mind, and many of the problems we experience, including ill health, are caused or aggravated by this stress.  

Through purifying and controlling our mind through meditation we can discover our incredible innate potential to heal and transform mental pain, sorrow, loss, physical suffering and sickness. 

Discover how the simple act of breathing can be turned into a powerful healing practice that causes mental peace and happiness, improves concentration, enhances your love, compassion, and wisdom, and brings great meaning to your life.
