Happiness from a different source
at the Fountains United Methodist Church
Cost: $10 per class
Happiness and suffering are feelings – parts of our mind – and so their main causes are not to be found outside the mind. If we really want to be truly happy and free from suffering we must improve our understanding of the mind. Through better understanding our own mind we will be empowered to transform it into more peaceful and positive states. In this series of classes we will explore Buddha’s teachings on how to find real happiness within our own mind through intentionally developing and maintaining peaceful and virtuous states of mind, such as faith, love, patience and compassion.
May 16th – Training in patience and compassion: Non-Hatred & Non-Harmfulness
May 23rd – Finding freedom: non-attachment
May 30th – Developing our wisdom: Non-Ignorance
