The Wheel of Life: Session 5

Session five from a weekend teaching with Lama Kathy Wesley

A basic wish in life is to be free from suffering and find happiness. But how do we free ourselves from negative habits, from old patterns, from old prejudices about ourselves and others? And how, exactly, is happiness arrived at — and how soon can we make that journey? This weekend seminar describes the Buddhist teachings on interdependence, showing how “we are what we think,” and how our minds — and our experience of life — can be changed for the better.
