Sept 3: The magical practice for creating universal love

Learning to cherish others eases difficult relationships, allows us to experience a love that is as stable as it is real, and finally finds us lasting peace and contentment. Viewing others as equally important, we cultivate a feeling of love and affection for them. We stop self-obsessing and start equalizing ourselves with others to create harmony and peace inside and out.

Sept 10: Exploring the power of motivation, experiencing inner awakening 

We can experience real transformation when we set our mind to it. Motivation is one of the special five forces Buddha explains that can harness and convert our energy into increased inner stability, flexibility and strength.

Sept 24: Increasing good luck: The invincible force of merit
