Welcome the New Year with a retreat. Buddhism has many teachings that bring greater peace and happiness to our life. In this short retreat, we will concentrate on meditations that grow and strengthen our good heart for the new year.
Please join us for meditations that calm and clear our mind and get a positive start to the new year. The meditation will include a special chanted prayer to Avalokiteshvara, Buddha of Compassion to bless our year. Refreshments will be available for anyone who wishes to stay for a while after the meditation and we will toast the new year (with some non-alcoholic sparkling beverages).
We all have some people in our life that are difficult to deal with. There is not always an option for avoiding them, so we need to adjust our responses.
Buddhism teaches many practical ideas on dealing with those difficult people – people who are often so dear to us.
We all love the holidays and our families, but this busy, emotional time can often be stressful. It needn’t be that way! Come and learn about ideas that can make your holidays more relaxed.
