Newport Beach – Meditation Classes Thursday Evenings (7:15 PM to 9:15 PM)

Meditation Class Series
How to Deal Effectively with Anger and Disappointment

Meditation Class Newport Beach How to Solve Our Human Problems, is a text that shows us directly how our internal anger is responsible for destroying our contentment.  When anger is present in our mind it is impossible to respond peacefully to challenging situations.  Learn the Buddhist practice of patient acceptance.

From the text How to Solve Our Human Problems, “When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the side of the mind.  If we responded to difficult situations with a positive or peaceful mind they would not be problems for us.  Eventually, we might even regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development. Problems arise only if we respond to difficulties with a negative state of mind.  Therefore if we want to be free from problems, we must transform our mind.”

Explore through Meditation, Commentary and Discussion the Method to Create an Inner Space and Stillness that Enables us to Control our Mind Regardless of External Circumstances.

Free from distracting thoughts, develop a patient heart, a mind of loving kindness toward others and find a meaningful and happy life. Join classes anytime – drop in.
