Online: Gladdening the Mind as We Grow in Our Confidence
 
with Amy Selzer & Nancy Glimm
 
Sundays, October 24th – November 14th, 2021 | 10:00am – 1:00pm ET
 

 

It is possible to change your mood as you tap into your goodness in meditation and in daily life.

In this course, we will practice where our goodness takes us and supports us as we cultivate wisdom and true happiness.

We will learn to check the mind to see what is happening and see if we are feeding the defilements or not. We feel empowered when we are able to free the mind rather than being caught in our habits and patterns. We will deepen our understanding of finding ease in our daily lives and increase our awareness when faced with difficulties.

We will use our breath, our imagination, and the dharma to harness our negative thinking. Everyone has goodness within. Together we will discover how to recognize and nurture it.

These classes are open to both beginning and experienced practitioners.
