Transforming Painful Emotions

(Video Catch-up available for 7 days)

5 Week Meditation Course with Chelvi Mailvaganan

In Buddhism, painful emotions are known as ‘delusions’. They are called this precisely because they are delusional ways of seeing the world and they distort our perceptions. Therefore, delusions such as anger, desirous attachment, jealousy, and deluded pride are completely unreliable states of mind, guaranteed to create unhappiness for ourself and others.

Buddha taught clear methods – based in meditation – for recognizing these delusions and transforming them into healthier, reality-based states of mind. By applying these methods and dismantling our painful states of mind we can remain peaceful and effective in even the most difficult situations. Could there be a more essential life skill?

The classes include two guided meditations and a 30 minute talk related to the evenings topic.

Classes last for an hour. They are suitable for complete beginners and those with more experience of meditation. You’re more than welcome to join individual sessions or attend the series as a whole.

These online drop-in classes aim to teach effective, meditation-based solutions to everyday problems taken from the Kadampa Buddhist tradition. Everyone is welcome – these practical meditations can be practised by anyone, whether Buddhist or not.
