science of happiness

Meditation event | York Kadampa Meditation Centre | Saturday 5th February | 2-5pm

About the event

Buddha taught many ways to live a life filled with joy and meaning. The teachings he gave over 2500 years ago still apply today. They are scientific methods for increasing our happiness and improving our good qualities that we can verify through our own experience. In fact, as the pace of life quickens these methods, including meditation and training the mind in daily life, become ever more relevant.

In this course, we will explore this ancient wisdom and begin to experience a profound transformation that will lead to more joy and happiness in our modern world. Through this we can begin to actualize an extraordinary potential for lasting happiness and even enlightenment through the joyful and heart-opening path of compassion and wisdom.
