It is easy to take our time for granted and to get swept up in stress, discouragement, and busyness. If we take the time, we can learn to transform these habits of mind into feelings of genuine peace, satisfaction, and joy with simple meditation practices.

In this series, you will learn to grow your wisdom and happiness so we can wake up smiling and stay that way.

Each class is drop-in and is suitable for beginners. Everyone is welcome.

We’re Family Friendly! 

We have a kid’s class in conjunction with our adult’s class and a video link of the teaching is available in a family area for parents with babies and smaller children.

We have so many fears these days: fears for ourselves, our family and friends, and for our world. Sometimes these fears are manifest and sometimes they are beneath the surface, giving rise to anxiety and insecurity. What do we turn to protect us from fear and anxiety? What can we rely upon? According to Buddha’s teachings it is possible to transcend our fears and attain a state of fearlessness. But this can only be accomplished through investigating them and uncovering their source in our own uncontrolled and painful minds.

In this series, Kelsang Tabkay will guide us in the process of learning to transform our fears and anxieties into an energizing force that takes us towards a state of fearlessness. In particular, through transforming our fears into joyful, positive minds we will learn to create excellent conditions that are the opposite to those we fear!
