About this course
In uncertain times everyone needs a special method to build inner strength and the inner protection of spiritual experience. The meditation practice of taking away suffering through compassion is this special method.
“By training in taking we can strengthen our mind until it becomes unshakeable.” The New Eight Steps to Happiness
The ancient Kadampa teachers used to pray to have a mind as strong and stable as a blacksmith’s anvil, which does not break no matter how hard it is struck. Since it is not possible to prevent difficulties from arising we need to develop a strong and flexible mind that can withstand life’s challenges and transform hardships into opportunities for spiritual growth.
Buddha’s Lojong teachings provide us with valuable methods to develop true inner strength, resilience and unshakeable confidence.
This course will include teachings and guided meditations on how to deepen our patience and strengthen our compassion through the practice of taking and how we can integrate these practices into our daily life.
Everyone is welcome!
