Living Life to the Fullest

It seems that everyone at one time or another experiences feelings of dissatisfaction or discontent. We may look for ways to improve our external conditions, such as changing our job, our home, or our relationships, but these solutions are temporary at best.

Through contemplating Buddha's teachings, we can overcome discontent and learn to appreciate the life we have. We will come to understand the value of our human life and learn to use each moment in a meaningful way.

In this weekly meditation series, learn to find meaning in every moment. Through meditating on Buddha's teachings you will understand the value of your human life and learn to live life to the fullest.


CLASS STRUCTURE

Each class includes guided meditations, teaching, and time for Q&A (not available for online-only classes). A brief introduction of the topic will be presented followed by a guided meditation to settle the mind, the main teaching, and a closing guided meditation.

The main teaching will cover the class topic. It includes an explanation of Buddhist practices and methods to apply them to your daily life through meditation, contemplation, and effort. Reference to particular pages in books may be offered. It is not necessary to have the coursebook in order to benefit, but you may find it helpful. Further reading is always encouraged.

Each teaching ends with another guided meditation specifically to help students take the teaching to heart and be able to begin to practice on their own what they’ve learned in class.

Classes will be posted weekly throughout the course and will remain available for viewing for the length of the series. This course is suitable for all levels of experience.

Although it is beneficial to attend the entire series, you may drop in at any time. Classes are held weekly. Suitable for all levels of experience.
