Finding Inner Peace in Difficult Times covers how to remain calm and handle stressful situations with clarity and skill. Taught by western Buddhist nun Kelsang Dechan, the class will offer guidance for finding peace permanently. The class will meet for six weeks from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays, Jan. 31 through March 7, at Mahasiddha Buddhist Center, 1235 S.E. Division. Cost is $59.
