From Worrier to Warrior

Fear and worry are crippling emotions that can take over our lives, preventing us from living our best life. Instead of shrinking into ourselves, trying to avoid the inevitable problems and sufferings of life, we can manifest our own spiritual potential for fearlessness and courage, like that of a confident warrior. 

In this series, we will be learning how to overcome our fear and worry, and become a confident spiritual “warrior,” ready to face whatever arises knowing we can turn it into something beneficial for ourselves and others. Called “accepting defeat and offering the victory,” this special Buddhist practice leads us to embrace our life wholeheartedly with the courage of a lion.

About Sunday Mornings at Heruka Center

Living a Spiritual Life

These drop-in meditation classes help us orient our life from the mundane to the spiritual!  Learn Buddha’s timeless and universal wisdom for how to live your best, most magical life.  Each class consists of guided meditations, a short chanted prayer, a talk and time for questions.

Book Used:  The New Eight Steps to Happiness

The New Eight Steps to Happiness: The Buddhist Way of Loving Kindness explores how to meditate on eight beautiful verses that comprise one of Buddhism’s best-loved teachings, Eight Verses of Training the Mind, which has inspired generations of Buddhist practitioners for almost a thousand years. Composed by the great Tibetan Bodhisattva, Geshe Langri Tangpa, this short poem shows how we can transform all life’s difficulties into valuable spiritual insights.
