Five Kinds of Happiness 

"The purpose of life is to be happy." 

                    The Dalai Lama

The Buddha taught about states of happiness: those that are dependent on conditions and those that are not dependent on any conditions at all. Our personal practices invite us each to cultivate all of these: to open to all forms of abiding happiness that nourish and support wholesome living. We are asked to cultivate happiness within the unique truths of our own lives, our own histories and conditioning and our own current circumstances, strengths and human limitations.

This evening’s talk, the third in a series, will explore the spiritual practice of allowing and deepening various wholesome aspects of sensory ease and happiness, including contact with the natural world,  with a healthy body and with a mature and healthy and integrated mind. 

Sharon will be on Zoom, and we will gather in person at UU and on Zoom. 

In-person participants:

  • Are required to wear masks in the building at all times.
  • Show proof of vaccination upon initial check in.
  • Name tags will be marked so that you do not have to show proof each week.

A parking lot is located on the north side of Edgewood Lane. Enter the building through the side entrance, also on Edgewood Lane, across from parking lot.

We will be livestreaming to Zoom for those who want to join virtually:
