  • How to solve our human problems

    These classes offer a rare opportunity to receive commentary to the book How To Solve Our Human Problems and systematically go through all the topics that are included.
    The teachings in this book are particularly powerful for helping us to develop a strong, stable, peaceful mind of patient acceptance and to overcome our tendencies to become stressed, irritated, upset, anxious and angry. Learn how to respond to life’s challenges with a positive and peaceful mind and use them as opportunities for spiritual growth and development. Through understanding and practicing the teachings in this book we can gain true inner strength and confidence.
    This book is fantastic for beginners and long term practitioners alike.
