Breaking Bad Habits June 13 Saturday Morning Class
June 13, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm UTC-5$6.00 – $12.
Online class with Gen Demo
We want happiness and because we think pleasant feelings are real happiness, we crave them. We crave the “happiness hits” that come from coffee, food, praise, shopping, intoxicants, sex, and other things which can provoke unhealthy habits that interfere with true happiness. Moreover, with uncontrolled desire in our minds, we actually experience stronger agitation, discontent, and suffering.
In this talk & guided meditation with Gen Demo we will explore how to uproot and become free from the hallucinogenic-like drug of uncontrolled desire and find deep happiness, well-being, and peace.GUIDED MEDITATION
Each class begins with guided breathing meditation, to help settle the mind, let go of distractions and cultivate inner peace.
Gen Demo will then give a practical teaching based on the topic of the class series and explain how we can integrate Buddha’s timeless wisdom into our busy daily lives.
The class concludes with a guided meditation to help us mix our mind with the teaching and take it to heart. There is also an opportunity to ask questions.
