 TRANSFORMING ANGER & CONFLICT

6 Week Online Meditation Course with Chelvi Mailvaganan

(Video Catch-up available for 7 days)

In situations of conflict, we tend to become angry easily. We even think anger will help us ‘win our battles’, and we rely on it as if it were our trusted friend.

The mind of anger, however, leaves a trail of broken relationships, lost opportunities, and painful feelings in its wake. There’s a reason for this. According to Buddha anger is a deluded, unpeaceful mind that distorts our perception, causing us to exaggerate problems so that they feel unmanageable. Consequently, so much of our life feels overwhelming, which makes us even more angry and unhappy, both with ourselves and others.

During this series, through talks and guided meditations, Chelvi will explain Buddha’s illuminating and practical teachings on how to let go of anger. Putting these explanations into practice will enable us to transform the energy of anger into a centred, skilful and creative response that opens us up to resolutions and new possibilities.

Suitable for everyone!

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.
