The schedule for the first four months of 2022 is as follows:

  • February 12, 2022 – Amp Up your Happiness. This Zoom presentation begins an exploration of the Buddha’s eightfold path of cultivating skillfulness in understanding, thoughts, speech, action, livelihood, effort, mindfulness, and concentration. This session helps us to cultivate skill in the first three areas: understanding, thoughts, and speech.

  • March 12, 2022 – Life Itself Orients Toward Happiness. In this Zoom presentation, we practice skillful action; skillful livelihood in ethical work, practiced with honesty and integrity; and skillful effort, aware of our negative attitudes and cultivating wholesome thoughts and more open-hearted behaviors.

  • April 9, 2022 – If Only… I’d Be Happy. This in-person presentation teaches the steps on the path to happiness: cultivating a skillful mind that is uncluttered, precise, sees through negative thought patterns, and guides us to inner wisdom and kindness and skillful concentration that is free of worry, restlessness, boredom, and dullness.
