Conquering Depression & Discouragement: A Buddhist Perspective

with Gen Kelsang Rigpa

Sunday, Sept 2nd | 9am-1pm

About the Workshop: When the destructive power of the mind is unleashed against oneself we can damage our sense of self-worth and experience feelings of inadequacy and self-loathing. However, through skillful analysis and meditation, we can gradually learn to identify these unhelpful thought patterns, feel empowered to accept our shortcomings, and transform our self into the confident, happy person we wish to be.

The Art of Acceptance

Meditations to Overcome Anger and Blame

with Gen Kelsang Lhadron

Saturday, Sept 22nd | 9am-1pm

There is an art to harmonious relationships. Although our friends and family bring us happiness and joy, they can also be a source of mental pain and anger. If we understand that everything depends on our state of mind as well as causes and conditions, we can overcome our internal problems and improve our relationships and circumstances.

Once we understand dependent relationships and genuinely accept, we can experience an oasis of peace within our hearts.

In this retreat, explore how relationships and experiences depend on causes and conditions and how we can use meditation to experience pure happiness and joy.
