In this course we will be looking at the "Eight Fold Path". We will take a fresh and light look at some of the primary Buddhist teachings and include a great deal of meditation instruction and practice.
This 8-week course contains information, exercises, and meditations to help you quiet the mind, dis-identify with it, and move into the present moment where you can experience your true nature, which is at peace with life and contains all the wisdom you need to create a happy and fulfilling life. The key to happiness is not getting something from outside ourselves or even improving ourselves, but by connecting with our own source of wisdom, happiness, peace, and contentment. We are all masterful and joyful beings. This course will help you discover the true source of happiness and leave behind limiting thoughts and beliefs and the painful emotions they create.
