 Climate instability, violence, injustice, poverty, war, the threat of extinction... The world is in crisis and the extent of suffering is overwhelming. Mostly our response is one of either hopelessness or denial, and we can see the results of these responses in our ever increasing addictions - to drugs, alcohol, distractions, and escapism.

Buddha’s profound analysis of the nature and inevitability of suffering enables us to respond with the exact opposite of helplessness, a powerful positive energy to actually address crisis. With a spiritual perspective solutions become available. We can eradicate the inner causes of our suffering and thereby compassionately help others to do the same. The state of the world can energize us to seize the opportunity to make a difference. Buddha’s extraordinary insight shows us how. If not now, when?

 5-Week Follow-up Course on Monday and Wednesday Evenings

A 5-week follow-up course will be taught by Daniel Koren on Wednesday evenings (starting Wednesday, October 30th) and Joseph Giacona (starting Monday, November 4th).

During this series, Daniel and Joseph will explore:

  • How spiritual practitioners can thrive during times of crisis

  • Why our state of mind depends on how we act

  • How we can use meditation to open ourselves to the wisdom that will change the world

  • Why we can make much greater progress when fueled by love and compassion

Week 1: Boundless Possibility: Experiencing a Spiritual Perspective
Week 2: Understanding Where Suffering Comes From
Week 3: Wisdom: Change Your Mind, Change Your World
Week 4: Love and Compassion
Week 5: Inner and Outer Action

Price: $15 per class, or sign up for all five classes in advance for $50 (save $25).

Everyone welcome!
