Dealing With Difficulties

Saturday 4th December | 10am – 1.15pm


What will the Christmas holidays bring…? That depends upon our mind! In everyday life we cannot avoid encountering difficulties, difficult people, challenging uncomfortable situations and endless things we do not wish for. Buddha taught it is our mind that has the power to harm or to help. Through learning meditation, we can learn to control our mind and instead of responding with annoyance and unhappiness, train to respond with patience, wisdom and love. What is the best present we can give to those that we love and ourself? During this half day course, we will receive Buddha’s helpful wisdom advice that will enable us cope with small to big problems, giving us the real gift of inner peace, which all of our hearts long for.
