Meditations for World Peace

with Kathleen Thurston

In-Person & Live-streamed

Sundays | 10 - 11am

This series will be based on Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's book "How to Solve Our Human Problems."
  • In this busy world, our experiences of happiness are fleeting and short-lived, while inner peace eludes us completely. Our negative states of mind, such as uncontrolled desire and anger, create endless problems for ourselves and others, and prevent us from fulfilling our deepest wishes. Buddha's popular teaching on the Four Noble Truths offers a clear and simple solution, guiding us to an oasis of peace within our hearts.
