transforming pain into power

Half-Day Online Meditation Course 

Saturday 3 July |10.00am – 1.00pm

Half-Day Online Meditation Workshop with Buddhist Teacher Chelvi Mailvaganan including Live Q & A. 

(Video Catch-up available for 7 days)  

What is our response to trauma, pain, and the suffering we see inside of us and around us? Discouragement, fear, grief, anger? When we find ourselves feeling helpless or overwhelmed is there anything that we can do?

In this half-day course Chelvi will explain and guide meditations on the healing practice known as “transforming adverse conditions into the path”. This is the practice we all need right now.

Through this training, rather than feeling discouraged or upset by problems and pains we discover a capacity to turn that negativity around and use it to empower our mind for positive change.

The result is that instead of feeling stuck and helpless, we gain an inner ability to transform difficulties, both inner and outer, into powerful, positive states of mind, such as love, compassion, wisdom and faith.

This positive power enables us to grow spiritually and create a deeply positive effect on those around us and even our world. We can find power in pain. Join us to learn how.

This course is suitable for everyone, both those completely new to Buddhist meditation and those more familiar.
