Dealing with Global Uncertainty
We live in a world governed by environmental and political uncertainty. As nations and individual busily plan to undermine and out power each other, thousands of species of animal are becoming extinct and our world and our bodies are becoming increasingly polluted. Faced with this, many people respond by becoming frustrated, disillusioned or simply hardening their heart. Buddha predicted this degeneration and gave priceless advice on how to use adversity to affect radical inner transformation. In truth, all the problems we see in the world result from the collective actions of the beings inhabiting it. By taking to heart the meaning of Buddha’s training the mind teaching we can transform the same conditions that presently affect us in an adverse way into powerful spiritual lessons that inspire positive growth and development.

Resilience
Mental resilience is an inner quality that enables us to remain unruffled in times of difficulty. Without it, we are easily upset and our mental state remains vulnerable to circumstances outside our control. In this course discover your potential to experience an inner peace and resilience as stable as a mountain and as calm as the depths of an ocean. Everyone is welcome!
