Joy in Everyday Life

with Christine Sloan
November 16 / 7:00 PM - November 18 / 5:00 PM

Joy in Everyday Life

As meditation practice expands and we develop trust in basic goodness, we can begin to discover the confidence and personal energy to go forward on the journey. Joining gentleness with discipline leads to a sense of joy.
We will explore the Mahayana Buddhist teachings, in combination with the dignity of the lion, and its qualities of cheerfulness, health and freedom from doubt.
