Habits of Happy people | 5-week Mindfulness series

Choose happiness by learning 4 powerful states of mind that naturally give rise to inner strength and quality of life.

Happiness is something that each one of us has the potential to experience, but often our habitual ways of thinking take us in the opposite direction. This engaging 4-week mindfulness series will teach critical lessons about some of the habits of happy people that will enrich your life's experience.

We will explore several meditations and ways of thinking that uplift the mind and how by carrying these with mindfulness into our day we can maintain a light, joyful attitude whatever life throws our way. Everyone is welcome to attend this series of classes. No previous experience necessary.

January 17 |  Choose Happiness - a free public talk

Creating and maintaining a balance between exerting and enjoying ourselves outwardly and taking time to learn and improve a peaceful mind and a good heart inwardly is crucial for a happy life.

‘Since the real purpose of meditation is to increase our capacity to help others, taking time each day to meditate is not selfish. We have to manage our time and energy in such a way that we can be of maximum benefit to others, and to do this we need time alone to recover our strength, collect our thoughts, and see things in perspective'

- Geshe Kelsang Gyatso


January 24 |  Contentment - Teachings for a happy life

"Without contentment, a rich man will think he is poor"- Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. By learning to be happy with what we have we can overcome our overwhelming dissatisfaction, simplify our life and be able to focus more easily on internal changes.

 

January 31 |  Acceptance - Teachings for a happy life

In this class, we will learn how to maintain a calm and joyful mind even in the most challenging circumstances through applying Buddha's teachings on patient acceptance.

 

February 7 |  Joy - Teachings for a happy life

It is very easy to allow our mind to focus in ways that are contradictory with our basic wish to be happy. This class will explore teachings and meditations that enable us to keep a positive mind and overcome negative thoughts such as jealousy, competitiveness and discouragement.

 

February 14 |  Gratitude - Teachings for a Happy Life

We can get so stuck focusing on the negative that we can forget to appreciate all the benefit we receive from others. By maintaining an awareness of the kindness of others in our life we can keep a positive, grateful mind that will make us more warm and well disposed towards others and protect us from unhappy thoughts.
