What makes life fulfilling? Is it the quality of your job, your partner, your vacations, or is there something more?
We all have the potential and deep wish to be happy all the time, but we may find it difficult to realize this wish. We typically blame circumstances or other people for our bad feelings, but the main obstacle to happiness is our own mind. Through understanding the relationship between our experiences and our thoughts, we can become the architects of a more fulfilling life — transforming our daily experiences into meaningful and blissful ones that benefit both ourselves and others.
In this public talk and meditation, Kadam Lucy James will present meditation and positive thinking techniques as scientific methods to transform our mind, even in our increasingly distracted world, and help us experience the lasting happiness and fulfilling life we long for. This event will be followed by a weekend meditation retreat with Kadam Lucy James.
