Living Positively in a Troubled World • An Inspiring Evening Talk

About the Talk

When we look at the world around us we might sometimes feel despondent or discouraged. It can seem impossible to be happy — both with the difficulties we face in our everyday lives and the troubles in the world at large. How can we feel positive and live positively in such a troubled world?

At this evening talk learn how to turn negativity into a powerful force for empowering our mind. Instead of feeling stuck and helpless, we can use these challenges to develop positive states of mind such as compassion, wisdom and love. This not only makes us emotionally strong and joyful, but also enables us to bring happiness to those around us.

Everyone is welcome to this unmissable event with this highly experienced teacher.
