Course 3 of the Everyday Life Series

Open to all

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.

Contentment in Everyday Life class recommended as preparation but not required
