His subject will be:  Recognizing our Buddha Nature

We are all endowed with innate goodness, our Buddha Nature, but we just don’t recognize it. In this talk we will examine the ways our innate qualities of loving kindness, compassion and wisdom, naturally manifest and how we can become more familiar with these qualities and learn to live our lives as an expression of our true nature.
