Portsmouth Buddhist Center Sunday Mornings: Samsara Hacks | Dharma for Everyday Life and Liberation — The teaching of the Buddha, known as the Dharma, is not meant for dusty bookshelves.

Change Your Mind — Change the World | The practice of transforming mind, heart and community (East Coast Regional Retreat 2021 – Jan 15–18) Buddhism works because our minds are changeable. The Buddha taught that the mind is not a fixed thing; the mind is more like an ever moving and responding network of habits and processes. It is because of this fluidity, that we can approach our minds as a work-in-progress, or even as living art, shifting from limiting and painful habits to expansive and gladenning momentums.
