Every day we encounter hundreds of situations we do not like, from stubbing our toe or having a disagreement with our partner. Our normal reaction to all of these occurrences is to become unhappy and angry. Since it is impossible to fulfil all our desires or to stop unwanted things happening to us, we need to find a different way of relating to frustrated desires and unwanted occurrences. Through training our mind in patience we will learn to keep a cool and positive state of mind all the time.
2–9 December 2019
02 December | Understanding the mind – the creator of our reality
09 December | Understanding past and future lives
Even after 2500 years, Buddha’s wisdom has proven to be more relevant than ever. These evenings will offer an insight into basic buddhist views, such as us understanding the nature of our own mind and past and future lives. Through these teachings we will be able to recognize and abandon states of mind that harm us, and to replace them with peaceful and beneficial ones.
