About this course

So many people suffer from a sense of overwhelm by the stress and demands of everyday life. The ability to respond skillfully to these feelings of stress is essential for those who want to live in the modern world with a peaceful mind. By viewing our life in a positive light, we can maintain inner peace during stressful times, and even use these situations to learn deep lessons about the mind and about reality.

On this course with Gen Osung, a modern Buddhist nun and meditation teacher, we will explore special ways of thinking that help us to live life more lightly, help us let go of our stressed out minds and deal with our negative emotions more confidently and effectively.

Everybody is welcome to attend this series of meditation classes, regardless of experience. The course will consist of practical teachings and short guided meditations that will give rise to a peaceful feeling in the mind and improve our ability to deal with stress.

Week 1:  Letting go of stress, creating an inner refuge

Week 2:  Why worry? – understanding why we get stressed

Week 3:  This too shall pass – contemplating impermanence

Week 4:  Lasting freedom – finding peace in emptiness
