Event description
Overcome negative states of minds that can steal your peace and good feelings about yourself and others.

About this event

Painful emotions do not come to us from the outside but exist within our own mind. They are part of our mind, but not an intrinsic part, and are caused by our delusions. Negative states of minds that steal our peace and good feelings about ourselves and others. In these classes we will learn how to identify delusions and reduce their hold on us. By doing this, they gradually diminish and we draw closer to the person we wish to be — happier, hopeful, and confident.

These classes are perfect for all level of practitioners, both beginners and advanced. You may attend any or all of the classes. Everyone is welcome!
