Wisdom & Bliss: The Inner Path to Happiness


  • Kadampa Meditation Center Texas 1875 Laws Street Dallas, TX 75202 United States (map)

Kadam Lucy James the resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Center Colorado explains the inner path to happiness.

About the Weekend

In recent years we have witnessed remarkable material and technological progress, yet we may feel as though we are still lacking lacking the perspective, wisdom, and confidence to enjoy a happy and meaningful life. In a world of so many possibilities, where should we look to find it? Is it through a life full of travel, an ambitious career, finding the perfect partner — or is there something more?

Buddhist wisdom reveals that the experience and quality of our life depends completely on our mind. Rather than focusing exclusively on external goals, we can also improve the quality and experience of our life by accessing the nature of reality and the bliss of our own mind, including its limitless potential for freedom and happiness. In this way all our experiences can be transformed from the inside out, benefiting ourselves and others.

Join us for a weekend of ancient wisdom that empowers you to gain practical experience of your own inner peace.

Kadam Lucy will be taking her teachings from the International Kadampa Summer Festival 2019 in Ulverston England, just concluded a week earlier.

Also see information on the public talk.

You can attend part or all of this special event. See registration info below.

Kadam Lucy James the resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Center Colorado, in Denver, explains the practice of patience and how patience enables us to live in the present moment which in turn allows us to experience deeper inner peace and access more subtle levels of mind.
