New class starting Sunday, September 3
with Kadampa Teacher Mike Racadio

First and Third Sundays – Cravings, Addiction and Attachment 3-4:15pm

Discover the inner peace and mental freedom that comes from learning how to let go of habits of craving, attachment and addiction. We all experience craving in our lives, whether its for people, food, smartphones, or unhealthy substances. If we don’t have skilful ways of dealing with this habit of craving, it can easily lead to strong attachment and addictive tendencies. In this way it can easily undermine our peace of mind, happiness and self-esteem.
