About the Talk
Join Insight Meditation teacher Ronya Banks online to explore the Buddhist teachings and practices that bring inner peace—even in the midst of chaos.
Many people seek happiness and peace by trying to control or change aspects of their lives and world. But these attempts usually create frustration and pain because life is inherently imperfect and uncontrollable.
The ancient wisdom teachings of Buddhism show us how to cultivate inner peace independent of external conditions. Ronya will outline and explore the Buddhist practices we can follow to discover and maintain inner serenity.
