Course Description

When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations we tend to regard the situation itself as the problem. But if we learn to maintain a peaceful mind, we can be happy all the time regardless of our circumstances. Learn Buddhist techniques to help us respond to difficulties with a positive mind.
