Week 4: The meditation game changer
Every difficulty can be a traumatic experience or an opportunity for growth – what is it in us that decides?
We tend to reject a lot of our life because it's difficult, or we repress our unpleasant experiences; but this makes us unhappy, solves nothing, and wastes much of our time. In this series we will come to understand how we ourselves are involved in the trauma within our own minds, learning to face difficulties and overcome them instead of feeling hurt and injured. Rather than being defeated by long-held patterns of repression, fear, and judgment, we can understand where our resistance comes from and replace it with wise, spacious minds like patience, love, and compassion.
Week 1: Feeling less frustrated and overwhelmed
Week 2: Feeling less critical
Week 3: Feeling more patient
Week 4: Feeling more self-confident
Week 5: Feeling more compassionate
In modern life, almost everyone experiences some degree of fear, anxiety and loneliness. By discovering their underlying causes and learning new ways of thinking, we can reduce and eventually overcome these bad habits of mind.
Crossing through the barriers that separate us from others opens us to a new world of intimacy. The quiet impulse that draws us toward being close to others is the same impulse that invites us toward a spiritual life. We long to move beyond the boundaries of normal appearances!
In this meditation series, discover Buddha’s specific teachings on how to radically change our mental attitude and learn how to unlock our potential for emotional freedom, and happiness.
