HOW TO SOLVE OUR HUMAN PROBLEMS
June 3-Aug 26
When we face difficult situations in life, we feel stressed and frustrated. We don't like this because we want to be happy with our life. For most of us, our relationships with others are usually the source of our problems. They disappoint us and we get angry.
To solve these problems and find the happiness we desire, Buddha gave us some very practical advice. Use this summer to discover how these workable meditative approaches will reduce your stress, improve your relationships, and create a more harmonious life.
Based on the book How to Solve Our Human Problems by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Although this is a series, each session is designed to stand alone. Attend any or all. This series is beneficial for everyone. You do not have to be Buddhist to attend.
