Developing Mental Resilience

Half Day Meditation Course with Kelsang Oden

What can we do when things go wrong? When loved ones are hurting, or when we’re anxious about our health or finances? At these times, we need an inner resilience that can rebound from a hard knock, a buoyancy that stays afloat in the swamping storm.

Buddha’s teachings on patience and transforming adversity are what we need. We may not be able to avoid troubles, but can certainly transform them in ways to keep our cool, keep our peace of mind, and be able to respond in the most beneficial ways.

The Teacher

This half day meditation course will be led by Kadampa Buddhist Nun, Kelsang Oden

Oden is a modern Buddhist nun who has years of experience and presents meditation and Buddha’s teachings in a practical, kind-hearted and inspirational way.
