New Meditation for Everyone! Series Starts this Thursday!

Rejoice in Your Trials

An all-levels Meditation for Everyone! series with Jeff Goin

Beginning Thursday, May 12; 5:30 – 6:15 PM

In the Bible, James, the brother of Jesus says, “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials.” (James 1:2).

The Buddha agreed. The first of the Four Nobel Truths is, “First you should know suffering.”

The fact is any spiritual path worth its salt advises us to embrace suffering as part of our spiritual path, but in order for us to buy in to this advice, we need to:

  1. Believe that our trials are actually a means to us becoming a better person, and
  2. Learn techniques through which we can actually come to tolerate and then embrace our problems, which are unavoidable parts of human life.

Join Jeff Goin for this three-class Meditation for Everyone! series beginning on Thursday, May 12. You will also have the option of participating in these classes via live stream (i.e., we will be welcoming in-person attendance at the classes and, simultaneously, live-streaming the classes).
