13.8. How to deal with challenges: Surfing life’s waves with joy!

Workshop in English, Sunday 13 August, 2–6 PM

We have to face difficulties and challenges all the time – relationship problems, things that don’t work as planned, general discontentment, difficult people, painful feelings, sickness, anxiety and depression. Even though we want to be strong and in control, there are times when we feel a little overwhelmed by it all. Or we just want to feel more peaceful and joyful while dealing with daily life.

This workshop is for you! Join the Buddhist monk Gen Palden for an afternoon of meditation and reflexion. You will learn how Buddhist wisdom will help you view and relate to the reality of your life in a more positive, constructive way. Buddha taught that everything depends on the mind, on our attitude. We need to learn how to change our attitude from negative to positive. This is possible through the practice of meditation, to pacify our mind, and by analysing the nature of the reality itself. In fact, we will discover that when we change our mind, the situation changes. A problem becomes an opportunity. An obstacle becomes a lesson. A difficult person becomes a teacher. Be kind to yourself and dedicate this time to develop your inner wisdom.
