How do we find peace when everything around us seems so crazy? Whether we are overwhelmed by troubled relationships, a stressful job, the hectic demands of family life or the uncertain state of global affairs; we can undo destructive habits of reacting to our external world.

Venerable Robina Courtin will share some key aspects of Buddhist "mind-training" practices, which help us transform problems into opportunities and maintain a peaceful inner life in the face of life's challenges.

“Happiness is the mind that is free from junk: clear, blissful, happy and stable.”
