In his teachings on training the mind, Buddha explained many methods for transforming difficult conditions into causes of spiritual growth and development. By transforming our adversities in this way we can learn to maintain a peaceful and positive mind even in the midst of challenging circumstances. In this half-day course we will explore these teachings and practices taught by Buddha and try to gain some familiarity with them through guided meditation.
The teachings presented in this course will be based on the book:
