The Buddha's Path to Happiness

Happiness and Self-Compassion Program

"The Buddha teaches a path that is beautiful in the beginning, beautiful in the middle, and beautiful in the end.’’ ―Dīgha nikāya I.62

You'll undertand the Buddha's path toward happiness in a way that's fresh and that you can put to practice daily:

How does the Buddha's path guide us toward happiness?

What was the Buddha’s way of thinking about joy?

Why was it so revolutionary that it turned the whole world upside down?

Why does it continue to be influential?

Why are the Buddha's teachings more relevant than ever today?

In each class we'll meditate and explore the Buddha's teachings of how we can be "nourished by the same food of joy as the gods of light."

You'll receive meditations and informal practices to do during the week. The meditations for this class will integrate the Buddha's words from scripture and sacred texts. Myths, legends, and fables will also be woven into the course.
