FREEDOM FROM PAINFUL EMOTIONS
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?
During the courses we will explore topics such as :
– How to Deal Skillfully with Painful Emotions
– How to Transform Anger- How to Transfrom the Pain of Grasping and Attachment
Suitable for everyone!
The format of the course will be on a Zoom Meeting in which people will be able to interact directly with the teacher and the other participants.
A recording of the session will be sent the day after the class.
This is a 3 week course series and not open as individual sessions.
Classes last for an hour. They are suitable for complete beginners and those with more experience of meditation.
Mondays | 8pm – 9pm | September 6, 13, 20
