Is This As Good As It Gets?

A Meditation Day Course
Sun 22 Sep · 10am–1pm · $40
Everyone wants a happy life and we work hard to get what we want. But even when we get what we want, we do not get it in the way we want. We possess the object but do not derive satisfaction from possessing it, and with every object we desire come other things we do not want. In reality, our pursuit of pleasure from external sources, while neglecting our peace of mind, is actually preventing us from living a happy and meaningful life. On this course learn Buddhist teachings on the real causes of happiness and give yourself the life everyone is longing for.

Everybody is welcome to attend this course, regardless of experience. During the day you will receive practical teachings that are specifically related to the topic outlined above. The course will also include short guided meditations that will give rise to a peaceful feeling in the mind and improve your ability to solve your daily problems effectively.
