THE PEACE OF ACCEPTANCE

Saturday 29th June, 10.30am to 1pm

Suitable for beginners

Much of our stress and frustration in life arises because we are holding tightly to the view that things should be other than the way they are. Patient acceptance is a mind that is able to let go of this view and actually sees opportunities within difficulties.

Every day we expect everything to run according to our wishes. Instead of this, however, we experience things not going according to our cherished plans and we encounter situations we do not like. Our normal reaction is to blame and become frustrated and angry with inanimate things, other people or just our whole life in general. By developing new wisdom ways of viewing these experiences we can come to accept them and be able to behave appropriately and with a loving heart whenever we feel challenged. In this way our capacity to accept difficulties will increase, we will maintain good relationships with others and we shall find the freedom and joy that true patience brings.

Suitable for beginners and everyone welcome.  The half day course consists of two one hour sessions (10:30-11:30am & 12-1pm) which include guided meditations and a talk on the topic.  There is a half hour break in the middle for refreshments.  You are welcome to arrive from 9:45am for pre-course refreshments and to stay after the course also to relax in the centre.
