healing EMOTIONS

   14 TO 19 August 2023  


How often have you been caught in a trap because

your emotions got the better of you? 

From the Buddhist perspective, we are not victims of our world. Buddhism teaches that the world is something created by our own thoughts, beliefs and actions. To be aware of our pattern of thinking and acting, we need to understand that our actions, emotions and beliefs can be recognized and that we can actually make choices about them. Once we understand this, we can start to change our perception of the world and our reactions to whatever we experience.

Usually we put the root of our problems outside ourselves, onto others - now we are asked to turn that idea upside down to give us new ways to find inner peace and quality relationships.

Some of the topics covered will be:

The nature of the mind and its unlimited potential

Destructive and constructive minds and emotions

How destructive minds can be abandoned and constructive minds developed 

The course will include teachings, discussion and meditation. It will focus on applying Buddhist principles to find ways to deal with our everyday problems.
