The Wisdom of Letting Go:  Meditations for letting go of negative states of mindWisdom of Letting Go

It is common for people to give us the advice that we “just need to let go,” but it is uncommon for anyone to tell us HOW to let go.  The good news is that letting go of negative and agitated states of mind can definitely be accomplished once we learn how.  In this class series, we’ll take a closer look at meditations and practical teachings that help us to let go of whatever is troubling us.

Class Format

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.

The Product of Our Thoughts:

Understanding Our Mind to Create a Positive, Peaceful WorldProduct of Thoughts - Poster

Most people understand that the quality of their thoughts determines the quality and experience of their whole life.  What we often do not understand, however, is how the mind produces these thoughts or how to change them.  In this class series, we will explore the nature of the mind, how it functions, and how we can change it, one thought at a time.  Once we understand how our mind works, we’ll gain the ability to create more and more positive states of mind, and thereby come to live in a more positive world.

Class Format

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.
