Finding Happiness Within Through Meditation
With Master Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche
We can spend our entire lives searching for happiness externally, but true happiness can only be found within. If we simply remove the barriers between ourselves and our true nature, our inner happiness emerges. When we know our minds are fundamentally comfortable and innately happy, then wherever we go, whatever we do, happiness is always with us.
Join local Buddhist meditation master Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche as he explains methods for expanding our experience of happiness through meditation and then extending it to others. Through a combination of teaching and guided meditation, students begin to learn how to:
- Calm the mind and reduce stress and anxiety
- Relate to thoughts and emotions in a positive way
- Enhance our enjoyment of life
- Improve our relationships
- Transform every area of our lives.
Beginners are welcome. No previous experience with meditation is necessary.
