Overcoming Anxiety • 11 September – 9 October

Fear and anxiety are one of the biggest internal struggles faced by people in modern day society. In this 5 week series learn how to use meditation and practical application of Buddha’s teachings on the mind to overcome these negative emotions and find inner freedom.

Transforming Life’s Difficulties • 16 October – 6 November

Transforming difficult conditions is vital because we are constantly surrounded by difficulties. We cannot avoid difficult situations but if we can change our attitude to them they will no longer be problems. We can even use these difficulties to train our mind.

Self Confidence • 13 November – 11 December

Self-confidence is not a quality that we either have or we don’t have. In fact, it is a state of mind that can be cultivated. By applying Buddha’s teachings on the mind we come to discover that our insecurities are based on mistaken apprehensions of ourselves. As a result, we end up identifying with our limitations.

In this series, through inspiring talks and powerful guided meditations, we will learn how to experience the pure and limitless nature of our mind. Through this joyful experience we naturally let go of our inhibiting insecurities and instead identify with our potential. This authentic self-confidence naturally empowers us in all our activities. We will explore how to integrate this self-confidence into our life and in particular how to use it to bring about the deeper changes that we long for. In this way we begin to be the confident, joyful, loving person we truly wish to be.
