The practice of meditation has limited benefit unless we use the methodology in a prescribed spiritual context. This means that we identify spiritual goals and attainments and use our meditation practice to achieve these desired results. This course will identify several of the most important spiritual objectives and explain how to meditate on these special objects of concentration.

Buddha taught that success in life is not predicated on material possessions. What makes our life both successful and meaningful is being able to maintain inner peace continuously. In the pursuit of material gain we often experience stress, disappointments, or are tempted to engage in non-virtuous actions in order to obtain the things that we desire. This course will explore specific ways in which to let go of the issues that are holding you back, which prevent contentment and happiness.
