Living in the Moment

If we check, our mind is always swinging back and forth, one minute obsessing about the past and the next minute worried about the future. Either way, we are never fully in the present for long. Explore Buddha’s teachings on what living in the moment really means. Connect with the peace and happiness available to us moment by moment.

$12/class or $40 for a 4 class pass and no registration is required!
