      May 12, 2010
      According to Buddhism, much of our suffering comes from our misunderstanding of reality, and the disturbing emotions that arise from these wrong concepts. Come and learn some techniques and practices taught in Buddhist philosophy and meditation practice for working with our emotions.

      The Eight Worldly Concerns 
      May 19, 2010

      Are the things that we are normally interested in the source for real happiness?  A healthy body, a comfortable situation, a good reputation, gain and a lot of friends, these are the things that we are usually striving for.
      Is it worthwhile to concentrate all our energy on that? How reliable are they to really give us what we want?  Or could one find happiness somewhere else?
      Would it be worthwhile to spend some time to develop inner qualities like loving kindness, compassion. patience, and the wisdom to see things as they are?

      Join us also for two weekend retreats with Venerable Rita!
