Happiness isn’t something we need to find or achieve.
It is the very core of our being.

When we experience stress, anxiety, unhappiness or any other form of discomfort, our mind is not in its natural state. By learning how to reconnect with our true nature we can discover the happiness that lies within us and that is, in fact, the very essence of who we are.

In this Day of Mindfulness, meditation master Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will explore Buddhist methods for working with mind through meditation in order to experience our natural state of happiness and inner peace.

No previous background with meditation or Buddhist teachings is necessary.

Please bring a vegetarian meal to share for the potluck lunch.
