How to achieve authentic happiness, how to effectively help the ones we love, and how to become part of the solution to global problems. Discover Buddhist answers to real-world problems for an authentic and safe direction in life.
The core teachings of the Buddhist path presented in bite-size pieces we can easily digest. They are based on the Three Principal Aspects of the Path, a teaching from the Buddha that shows us how to deal with negative emotions so they don’t overwhelm us, how to develop a natural sense of compassion, and how to develop a realistic (and optimistic!) view of ourselves and the world. They are known as Renunciation, Bodhicitta and the Unmistaken View. With practical examples from daily life, you do not have to be a Buddhist, or even religious, to benefit from this simple yet profound approach.

About the Teacher
Miffi Maxmillion runs the spiritual program at Langri Tangpa, the FPMT center in Brisbane, Australia, and is a registered FPMT teacher. Miffi was brought up a Buddhist and had the great good fortune to play with Lama Yeshe as a child. His hook of compassion sustained her through the many rebellious stages of growing up. She took refuge with Lama Yeshe at age 10, and did her first lamrim and Nyung-ne with Lama Zopa Rinpoche at age 16.
She left behind a thriving haute couture and costume business to help her mother Inta Mckimm, who established Langri Tangpa, when she became sick with cancer. Packing her bags for two weeks, she ended up continuing her mother’s life work. She is still there, teaching classes and leading pujas with great enthusiasm and joy, over twenty years later!
Miffi’s passion is in bridging the seemingly disparate worlds of modern life and the rich inner experience of Buddhist practice. She readily admits to watching far too much late night TV and is an avid New Yorker Magazine reader.
