Gratitude: A thankful heart is a happy heart

One of the easiest ways to feel happy is to cultivate gratitude. When we call to mind the countless ways in which our physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing depends upon others, we’re filled with appreciation for the “web of kindness” that links and encompasses all living beings. And when we feel grateful, it gives us a sense of joy and connection with others. Enhance the meaning and enjoyment of this holiday season by increasing your awareness of, and gratitude for, the continuing and indispensable kindness of others in your life.

Drop-in classes. Everybody welcome. $10 per class.

Is the attainment of happiness really as complicated as we make it?  Is it true that happiness depends on such things as our ‘success’, reputation, status, looks, or possessions? The reality is that not one of these things – nor all of them together – can bring us lasting happiness. On the contrary, chasing after them with this hope is a sure way to frustration, disappointment and even cynicism.

Buddha teaches how we can all cultivate simple attitudes of mind that will make us genuinely happy. In each class we will explore, through teachings and guided meditations, how we can nurture powerful mental habits that fend off gloom and negativity, and enkindle a freeing lightness of heart and mind.
