A Modern Spiritual Life

Book: Modern Buddhism
Term 7: Sep 11 – Oct 6

When life doesn’t turn out the way we had hoped or expected it’s easy to feel discouraged and lose sight of its value. Through studying Buddha’s teachings we realize that our human life is incredibly rare and precious. Each one of us has a unique experience with so much to offer ourself and others. In this series of classes we will learn to reinterpret our experiences and see them all as valuable spiritual lessons about the true nature of happiness and suffering. Through this we can realize our amazing potential to change our future and benefit others, no matter who we are or how our life has unfolded.
