Craving, Addiction & Contentment
Saturday, June 8
10am – 1pm

Desire is a natural part of our human experience. Buddha Shakyamuni actually taught that human beings live in a world called “the desire realm” because we never forget our desires. In one respect this is helpful, because we can use our desires as an engine for our spiritual growth. However, desires that turn into uncontrollable cravings or addictions are dangerous and can lead us to the depths of misery.


In this course, we’ll take a look at what causes our desires to shift from beneficial ones to harmful ones. We’ll explore some tools for de-railing those dangerous desires. Finally, we’ll explore how contentment is an active and driving force in a peaceful spiritual life.


The course will include two sessions, each one including a meditation and a teaching.
