Joy in Everyday Life: A Five-Week Course

With Kathryn Rile
& Susan Arnesen

Five Tuesday Evenings
From 7 to 9 PM

October 9, 16, 23, 30 & November 5

Through an exploration of the Buddhist teachings on intelligent compassion towards others, we begin to discover the joy of discipline, health and bravery.

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. The mahayana teachings on compassion can become the inspiration for a life of bravery and freedom from doubt.
