Transforming Pain into the Spiritual Path

May 5 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm

May 5 – June 2
Time: 11:00am – 12:15pm
Cost: $15 per class or $60 for the series (free for supporting members)

Buddhist teachings explain that our suffering comes about due to uncontrolled and painful states of mind known as delusions.

Each week we will focus on how to deal with a particular delusion, among them – desirous attachment, anger/resentment, jealousy, miserliness, distraction, low self- esteem …  Learning practical methods to reduce the power of these delusions will allow us to experience a deep and satisfying emotional freedom, and give us skill to be the person we wish to be – positive, joyful, confident and loving. We will learn how to identify each delusion, and learn the opponent to each.

Each week includes Guided meditation, a talk, discussion & questions.

In these classes, Buddhist nun and teacher Kelsang Khacho will introduce a Buddhist approach to the transformation of pain and guide us through healing meditations that will empower us to feel confident and free, ready to face whatever challenges may come.

Although taught as a series, each class is self-contained and can be attended individually.

Everyone welcome!
