The mind is tricky and it does indeed lie to us. Trick us into suffering unnecessarily in a multitude of ways, one of which is anxiety. The Buddha gave the prescription for this through the practice of meditation, non harming, service and kindness. In this workshop we will put to practice this ancient and effective prescription and gain tools for overcoming and freeing ourselves from anxiety in all parts of our lives.
This class series is open to the whole community to practice together and explore Buddhist teachings. The evening includes a 30 minute guided sit, 30 minute discussion, along with 30 minutes of tea and conversation.
We will meet for 4 Tuesday evenings from Aug 6 – Aug 27th 7:30-9pm. You are welcome to attend all 4 classes for the best cumulative learning experience or attend classes indiviudally.
All are welcome. This is a chance to come together and practice in community.

Please give generously. Your act of generosity is significant. The Buddha taught that all of the beautiful qualities of heart and mind begin with generosity: Generosity dissolves the separation of self and other… Giver receiver and gift intertwined.
