Unhappiness, or dissatisfaction, is a seemingly unavoidable part of life, from small day-to-day grievances to life’s biggest concerns. The First Noble Truth of Buddhism states that it is an innate part of life – but that it is possible to overcome it as well.
So why do we really suffer, and what is the path out of suffering?
In this workshop, we will explore the fundamental roots of unhappiness from the Buddhist perspective and how mindfulness meditation helps us understand and overcome them. Our time together will include teachings, guided meditation, and group discussion.
