900 East Northern Parkway, Baltimore, MD 21212

| http://www.MeditationMD.org |
Cost: $25 ($20 for students, seniors, unemployed, and for early registration by Wednesday, Sept. 10)

We often confuse self-focus with self-confidence, believing that if we concentrate on our own needs and wishes we will feel more confident, but this often leads to self-criticism and lack of confidence.  By understanding what actually creates self-confidence we can learn to be reliable to our self and to others, feeling happy with our ability to accomplish what we set out to do.

Everyone is truly welcome! You do not need to be a Buddhist to attend. See www.MeditationMD.org for more details or call 410-243-3837

Family life is a wonderful thing, but it can also present its own special set of challenges and difficulties. How can we integrate Buddha’s teachings on loving-kindness,  patience, and inner peace into a modern home environment? This class will provide a forum for parents to discuss Dharma topics as they relate to their roles in the family, and for kids to enjoy activities and games that will introduce the basic principles of a kind and wholesome way of life.
