About the Event

Keys to a Happy Heart: Finding Joy Through Cherishing Others 

In this special series of meditation classes, we will learn and practice simple yet profoundly beneficial meditations that empower us to generate feelings of peace, joy, and loving kindness toward others whenever we wish. These meditations bring great happiness and meaning into our life and have a beneficial influence on our interactions and relationships with others. These classes are open to everyone. 

This is a hybrid event, so you can join in on the fun in person or from the comfort of your own home. In-person capacity is limited, so reserve your spot now! Virtual attendees will receive detailed information on how to participate via Zoom once they reserve a spot. The Art of Mindfulness is a three-part meditation series that can be purchased individually or together. 

About the Meditation Classes 

Suitable for everyone, these meditation classes offer simple, practical methods to improve the quality of our lives and develop inner peace. These classes focus on using Buddhist understanding to help us solve our daily problems, let go of negative minds, and find the lasting happiness we seek. 

Each class includes guided meditation, a practical teaching, and an opportunity to ask questions. Although taught as a series, each class is self-contained and can be attended individually.
