• Buddhist Antidote to Three Poisonous Minds – 3 Sessions:
Anger is strong. Anger is destructive. It destroys your happiness in this and future lives and can have a devastating effect on those around you. Learn techniques to deal with the anger of yourself and others.
Lama Yeshe said: “Attachment is so sensitive. Something small happens and you freak out. That’s all attachment; that’s the attachment trip”. Learn about attachment and how it impacts on your life.
Our mistaken way of perceiving ourselves, others and all phenomena is the root cause of all our problems in this and future lives. Overcoming this ignorance is the atom bomb of the Buddha’s teachings.
• What you wanted to know about Buddhist ritual but were too afraid to ask
Rituals and prayers help transform your mind to a more conducive state to meditate, listen to teachings, or undertake spiritual practice. They are particularly effective if you understand the psychology behind the practices and what they are trying to achieve. This session can cover practices such as prostrations, mandala offerings, altars and water bowls, prayers, visualizations, meditation postures, food dedication or anything you want to ask about.
• Turning the Mind and Taking Charge
Too often our minds are weighed down by anxiety, doubt, self criticism and other negative thoughts that make us unhappy. This workshop will help you understand the origin of these negative minds and show techniques on how to deal with them.
• One-Day Retreat: Meditations for Mindfulness and Wisdom
The Buddha taught that since unhappiness is a mental state, the primary cause for peace, free of disturbing states, is also found within the mind. Work with your mind, using shamatha (mindfulness) meditation, instruction and discussion to develop mindfulness and wisdom.
