Monday, October 23rd | 7:15-8:30pm
In this public talk with international Buddhist meditation teacher Kadam Lucy James, we will explore new ways fo thinking using Buddhist wisdom so we can create a life in which joy and good feelings are our moment to moment experience. During this talk we will begin to unlock how to access access all the truly good-stuff life has to offer.
The key to harmonious and meaningful relationships comes in understanding the deeper purpose of our relationships. Often we look to our interplay with family and friends to supply us with love and happiness. However, from the spiritual perspective we understand that happiness comes from the peaceful and positive minds of love, compassion, kindness, patience, generosity and so on. It is precisely in our relationships – both the joyful and the more challenging ones – that we are afforded the opportunity to train in these happiness-creating minds.
In this series, through talks, guided meditations and discussions, we will look at the profound set of practices known as ‘training the mind’, designed by Buddha to enable us to transform all of our relationships into wonderful opportunities for making great spiritual progress. Applying this training will enable us to develop harmonious and meaningful relationships; first of all, with ourself, then with our family and friends, and eventually everyone!
