Our next series

Nov / Dec - Growing in difficulties

When faced with difficult people or situations we may try avoiding them, or we may repress our feelings, or we may lash out in anger, or all of the above! Ultimately, none of these approaches will lead to a good result.

We can see, that if we are able to maintain a peaceful and happy mind all the time, those difficult people or situations are not a problem for us, we might even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities of growth and development – or as teachers that help us to understand a lot about ourself, our mind our past and future.

Topics include:

How to understand our difficult relationships?
Patience is not repressing
How to face our feelings with confidence
How to overcome our fear of being rejected?

Jan / Feb - The Courage to change

We all have a huge potential for change – but what is stopping us? In Buddha’s teachings we find many opportunities for personal fulfilment and development. However, without the confidence to really change ourselves internally, this path of inner transformation can’t work.

This 4-week course will support you in reflecting on the past year, thereby giving your life a positive direction and enabling authentic self-change. Take advantage of this special opportunity at the beginning of the year to establish your goals and priorities so that the new year can begin powerfully and clearly.
