Tuesday Meditation:
Seeing the Glass as Half Full (or Even Completely Full)

Tuesdays: September 27, October 4, 
October 11
, and 
October 18  

Our next meditation series will start on Tuesday, September 27, and Ven. Tenzin Chogkyi will lead one of the sessions!

We all have problems: financial problems, getting old, experiencing loss. Such is life! It's very easy to get stuck looking only at what goes wrong, suffering anxiety, or falling into depression, but why dwell on these? The natural spaciousness of our minds is open to peace, happiness, and joy. This new series provides tools to rewire our minds, developing gratitude for our infinite potential. According to science, gratitude is a powerful boost to happiness and health, and according to Buddhism, it's powerful fuel for our spiritual practice.

This series incorporates advice and practices to use between sessions, and we'll check in on our experiences each week. It is most beneficial to attend the entire series, although it's also possible to attend individual sessions.
Dates and Time:
Tuesdays from 7 to 8:30pm:

September 27: Deciding to be grateful, choosing to be happy

About the Teacher on Tuesday, October 18:
Ven. Tenzin Chogkyi bought a one-way ticket to India in early 1991 with the intention of meeting His Holiness the Dalai Lama. She then became a student not only of His Holiness, but also of Kirti Tsenshab Rinpoche and Lama Zopa Rinpoche. In 2004, she took novice ordination with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and since 2006 she has been teaching at various FPMT centers around the globe. She is currently the resident teacher at Vajrapani Institute in California and is very esteemed by her students for her warmth, joyful energy, and ability to adapt the wisdom of traditional teachings to our Western modern world.
