February series

The key to a successful meditation practice

The purpose of meditation is to familiarize our mind with the insights and aspirations that naturally produce happiness. If we do this regularly, those peaceful and happiness-inducing states of mind, such as love, compassion, and wisdom, naturally spill over into our life. We become more confident and joyful in ourselves, more skillful at dealing with adversity, and more beneficial to others. Indeed, we begin to experience our life as something magical,
imbued with great meaning and purpose, and we begin to get a taste of our mind’s boundless potential.

In this series Kadam Lucy will explain the essential components of successful meditation practice, and help us to gain experience of them through guided meditations. This will allow us to establish a practice according to our own level and personal situation, so that
we come to enjoy the life-transforming benefits of meditation

March series

Difficult Conversations

When faced with having to have difficult conversations we may try avoiding them, or we may repress our true feelings, or we may lash out in anger, or all of the above! Ultimately, none of these approaches will lead to happiness. Buddha emphasized the need for skillful and beneficial actions in all circumstances, and in particular he taught four special approaches to dealing with difficulties. Known as the four “siddhis”, or attainments, these four types of enlightened action will empower us with the energy and skill we need to deal with conflict and confrontation. They will allow us to navigate even the most challenging situations calmly and wisely, and they will allow us to speak with clarity and compassion.

During this series Kadam Lucy will explore:

  • The dynamics of difficult conversations
  • Meditation methods we can use to empower us in challenging relationships
  • How to reframe how we think about challenging people in our lives
  • How difficult conversations are doorways to growth and opportunity

Topics & Dates
with Kadam Lucy unless otherwise noted

March 6 - What creates a difficult conversation?
March 13 - Resolving Conflict
March 20 - Overcoming the Fear of Being Rejected
March 27- Fierce Compassion
