Wednesday Evenings at KMC South Carolina
Wednesdays, 7pm – 8:15pm
August 16 – September 13
with Resident Teacher, Kelsang Tabkay
$10 or $5 students/seniors (Free for Monthly Members)
In this series, which is perfect both for newcomers and those with more experience, we will explore the relationship between meditation and happiness. Buddhist meditation gives us direct insight into the causes of happiness within our mind and shows us how to cultivate them. We also learn what is meant by terms such as ‘letting go’, ‘acceptance’, and ‘transformation’, all of which are specific practices through which we stabilize our experience of happiness and overcome our tendencies towards unhappiness. In this way we learn to integrate our training in happiness into our everyday activities.
The emphasis in this series will be in gaining actual experience of these practices. This will vastly improve our life in all areas: work, home, and play.
August 16: Inner Peace and Happiness
August 23: Happiness is a Mind
August 30: Letting Go of Unhappiness
September 6: Acceptance and Transformation
September 13: Our Human Potential
