Event Panelists:

We are all seeking happiness. In this universal quest, the insight of the Tibetan culture found that happiness is not dependent on one’s past or present external conditions. Happiness is a state of mind that everyone can cultivate. Tibetans have developed a series of very effective techniques that can assist one in overcoming stress, leading a more balanced and wholesome life and finding happiness in whatever lies in one’s path.

Meditation and Mindfulness are the two key components of this mental training. Meditation is a process of familiarizing ourselves with a clear and accurate way of seeing, while mindfulness trains us in maintaining clarity. This seminar will introduce how to develop a practice oriented around these principles.
