Without choice, things around us are constantly changing. Sometimes things change so fast or so much that it can feel overwhelming. Sometimes things change in a chaotic or unpredictable way, leaving us with a feeling that we are not in control of anything. In this special half-day course, we will explore how we can use the practice of meditation to better manage our emotions in times of uncertainty. In this way we can become more flexible and resilient with change, and be able to maintain a sense of peace and purpose in this uncertain world.
The teachings presented in this course will be based on the book:
