Dealing with Anger & Frustration – week of 1 Sept to week of 4 Oct 6 weeks
Anger takes many forms from mild irritation or annoyance to lingering resentment, bad temper and even rage, but it is always painful and destructive.

The Healing Power of Meditation – week of 11 Oct to week of 25 Oct 3 weeks
Discover the power of ancient healing meditations to increase your positive energy, love, compassion, and wisdom, and in this way bring deep inner peace, happiness and meaning to your life.
These meditations heal both your body and mind, increase your ability to take on challenges and transform your difficulties into spiritual growth.
The Confidence to Change – week of 1 Nov to week of 22 Nov 4 weeks
We all want to make changes in our life. We want to be less insecure, less fearful, less angry, less depressed, etc. And we want to be more confident, courageous, happy, and creative and so forth. However, we find it difficult to make these changes and to bring about these new versions of ourself that we long for.
The practice of meditation, combined with Buddha’s insights on the workings of the mind, will enable us to let go of our self-limiting views and give us the confidence and skill to make these life-enhancing changes.
