How to Deal with Difficult People

Sat 21 Apr 2:30-6pm
with Buddhist teacher Richard Brown

Dealing with people is such a big part of our lives. What happens when we find others difficult to live or work with? Often our priorities differ, our opinions clash, conflicts can build and we can feel like another person is making us stressed and miserable. Buddha explains some clear methods for taking control back and realising that we can change our relationship with others by changing the way we view them. On this course, we will explore some powerful meditations for viewing others more constructively that will enable us to respond to what they do more effectively. These meditations give us the freedom to be at peace regardless of how others behave.

 

 

 


From Anxiety to Inner Peace 

Sat 28 Apr 2:30-6pm
with Buddhist nun Kelsang Chogma

Anxiety is an unpleasant feeling that affects most people in varying degrees. The stronger our karmic tendency to feel anxious, the more negative our outlook on life becomes. If we are not careful, our anxiety response can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. On this course you will learn how to train your body and mind to respond differently to the perception of threat or danger. By training in various meditation techniques and constructive ways of looking at the situation we will gradually increase our experience of inner peace, which is the foundation of our happiness.

 

 


Awakening the Buddha Within

Sat 19 May 2:30-6pm
with Buddhist nun Kelsang Chogma

Through practising the path of compassion and wisdom we awaken the potential within us for deep, authentic spiritual experiences. With compassion and wisdom, like the two wings of a bird, we can quickly reach the enlightened world of a Buddha. On this course we will look at a special presentation of Buddha’s teachings on compassion and wisdom that communicates their essence in a way that is easy to understand and put into practice. In this way we can transform our lives and accomplish the real meaning of our human life. How wonderful!
