About the event

"The pursuit of happiness” is a common bond that unites us all. Nearly everyone on the planet is actively engaged in finding sustainable happiness.

Still, regardless of our economic or social position, regardless of what we’ve acquired along the way, happiness seems to exist as a mysterious wind that comes in, fills us with joy, and then leave as unpredictably as when it arrived. We search for ways to capture it, to keep it around and within us for the long term, but inevitably it escapes us and we find ourselves searching again. In this workshop, Bhante Sujatha teaches us that although we can’t buy or build happiness, we can cultivate a simple mindfulness practice in our daily lives that leads to a sustainable contentment which can permeate every aspect of our lives.

“Mindfulness in everyday life is easy to learn, simple to practice, and an essential element in creating a happy life.”

Bhante Sujatha (he/him) is a 40-year Buddhist monk who teaches loving-kindness meditation worldwide. He simplifies core Buddhist teachings to make them practical and understandable for everyone. Bhante's goal is to add more love to the world and help people find peace through deep silence. He is the head monk of the Blue Lotus Buddhist Temple and Meditation Center in Woodstock, IL, and believes his purpose is to teach meditation and how to be happy.
