How to improve your qualities
How to choose happiness, not conflict
Transform difficulties into the spiritual path
Kadampa Meditation is a lot more than just breathing. If we use the meditation instructions taught by the great Buddhist meditation masters we will have the power to stop negative emotions and train ourselves to feel more positive and confident in all situations.
In this series of classes, we will learn how to move through a series of powerful meditations that will help you to practice the causes of happiness, in and out of meditation. These methods are supremely practical for modern life and help us use difficult situations to strengthen our inner good qualities, not increase our bad habits.
