Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness (10 week course, meets Wednesdays 6-8pm),

with Acharya Dr. Maureen Hall

February 19 - April 22, 2020

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. Deciding 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.
Your Full-Day Retreat, on March 28, and workbook are included in the cost of the course. You are on your own to purchase your textbook before class starts.The textbook is Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness: Walking the Buddha’s Path.
