What to Do When Things Go Wrong

When things don’t work out the way we want them to our usual reaction is to become upset or disappointed. But this just makes us feel bad and less able to deal with the situation. Through meditation we can learn to accept whatever happens with a calm and peaceful mind that helps us to stay positive and turn any situation, however difficult, to our advantage.

How to Be Kind to Yourself

It is very easy to be hard on ourself – to focus on our faults and mistakes and to be our worst enemy. We need to be kind to ourselves instead.  By learning how to develop positive and peaceful thoughts and intentions while guarding against the negativity in our mind we gradually come to lead a truly fulfilling life and have healthy relationships.

How to Understand Your Mind

We often say “My mind, my mind” but if someone asks us “What is your mind?” we would be hard pushed to answer. In this series of classes, we will explore Buddhist insights into the nature and function of the mind and learn how to use the creative power of our mind to create the experiences we wish for.

As happiness and suffering are states of mind, if we are to find the happiness we seek an understanding of our mind is essential. Through learning how our mind works, we can begin to bring our mind under control, and in this way improve the quality of our life, both now and in the future.
