Sometimes, when we hear the word “renunciation”, we could think that Buddhists want to give up on pleasures and happiness.
But is that really true ?
In fact, Buddha invites us to look for happiness where we can truly find it.
During this class, Sandra will teach us how to develop this mind of renunciation, and apply it in our daily life so that we can enjoy a deeper sense of happiness at work, with our family and friends.
Sandra has been practicing and studying Buddha's teachings at the Kadampa Meditation Center Dresden for many years. As a working mother, she has great appreciation for Kadampa Buddhism, as it reveals practical methods to develop and maintain peaceful states of mind and in this way helps to solve everydays problems. It is Sandra's gracious wish to share this precious teaching with others.
