THE HABITS OF HAPPY PEOPLE

Weekly Drop-in Classes: May

“If our mind is pure and peaceful we will be happy regardless of our external circumstances, but if it is impure and unpeaceful we will never be happy, no matter how hard we try to change our external conditions.” From the New Eight Steps to Happiness

Each week in these classes we will look at different attitudes we can begin to develop, that give rise to positive and peaceful states of mind and therefore are the basis for happiness.

You will find benefit from attending this set of classes each week, however they are designed so that you can drop-in any week.
