Wednesdays @ 10:30 – 11:30am with Gen Kelsang Chogden
Transform your mind and you can transform your day….even your life! Buddha’s teachings explain exactly how to achieve this.
This class is a wonderful and insightful presentation of how we can apply meditation and Buddhism to our busy modern lifestyles. The teachings are practical advice that we can immediately put into practice to find greater love, compassion and wisdom in our everyday lives. There is usually time for Q&A and class discussion.
Victory Over Negative Self
So often we are our own worst critic, and this also causes us to judge others in a harsh way. When we focus on finding faults in ourself and others we are creating and fostering unpleasant feelings in our mind, and thus we feel annoyed, depressed, anxious and irritated with the world, and create a self image of being a failure. Buddha explains how we can stop these bad habits, and substitute ways of thinking that encourage ourself and see the good in ourself and others. This results in our becoming more competent and brings harmony into our relationships.
