Stop Worrying, Start Living:  Freedom from Worry, Anxiety, and Feardude-worrying-living

We all experience some degree of fear from time to time, whether we call it fear or something else, like worry, anxiety, or insecurity.  Sometimes this fear is a mild irritant; sometimes our fears and insecurities can be paralyzing.  Our fear stops us from living the joyous life we long for.  During this series, learn to identify and overcome these fears using teachings and meditations derived from the Buddhist tradition.  Everyone is welcome.

Every class will begin with a brief introduction, followed by a guided breathing meditation and the Liberating Prayer. After meditation, there will be a short teaching and time for Q&A.

Karma:  A User’s Guide

“Karma” is a word that many people use but few people really understand.  When Buddha used the word karma to explain how certain actions produce certain effects, his original intention was to help people avoid unnecessary problems and pains and find fulfillment and happiness.  In this series of practical meditations and teachings on karma, we’ll come to understand what karma really means and how we can utilize our understanding to create a better life.
