Is human happiness possible? Find out the surprising answer in this class, "Buddhist Perspectives on Happiness, Part II." Buddha said that he taught about suffering and about an end to suffering. In this class, we will consider Buddhist teachings that promote equanimity and peace, as well as brain research that sheds light on this question.
Please obtain a copy of the text for the class, Beyond Happiness
by Ezra Bayda, and bring writing materials.
