Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness

with Dr. Maureen Hall

February 6 - April 10, 2019

This 10 week course is an intensive mind training in the Nobel Eight-fold Path and its applications to everyday life. Course consists of 10 two-hour weekly classes and one full day retreat.

This class will deepen your understanding of what it means to live your meditation practice. It will help you acquire skills and modify your lifestyle and attitudes thus developing ways of being in the world that cause no harm. Learning to be a source of joy to yourself and others.

It takes time and practice to develop these skills. You wouldn’t expect to play a Beethoven symphony without first having practiced the basics like scales and simple tunes first. Developing any skill worth having requires time, patience and practice. Living a skillful life is the same in that respect.

In this 10 weeks you will have the opportunity to look closely at your habitual patterns of thought, speech, and action. Determining what is useful and beneficial and what is not. Then beginning to carve away all that is not and to get a glimpse of that beauty that is at your core.

Our textbook is Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness: Walking the Buddha’s Path.
