‘Transforming Adversity’

Half Day Course on Saturday 26th September, 10am to 1pm with Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Leksang

transforming adversities

What’s wrong with things going wrong? Misfortune, uncertainty and conflict are entirely normal, they are to be expected at some point in all of our lives. Since difficult circumstances are inevitable, it is useful for us to explore why we dread and inwardly reject them when they arise.

When we look back at hardships and challenges that we have experienced in the past we can come to regard them as a training, conditions that made us the better, more resilient and kinder person than we are today.

Since adverse conditions are inevitable & even useful can we not learn to welcome them, in real-time, as opportunities for growth? It is understood by meditators of the past and present that the ability to reframe adverse conditions in this way leads to a deep inner calm and a mental resilience that cannot be disturbed by anything! On this course learn how this is possible using teachings and meditations from the ancient tradition of training the mind.
