Going Beyond Hope & Fear

This 8-week workshop brings together the core of Buddhist Psychology into an essential and practical format. Each week we will discuss a core principle from the timeless text, Turning Suffering and Happiness into Enlightenment by the 19th century Buddhist Master Dodrupchen Jigme Tenpa Nyima. Ways in which the principles of Buddhist psychology may be applied to our modern life will be a central theme. Topics will include: the meaning and importance of having a refuge and how to find it authentically for oneself; understanding the relationship between karma and emptiness and the dramatic effect such an understanding can have on how we relate to suffering and happiness; how to relate to suffering so that we can draw strength and well being from the very source that seems to be disempowering us; and the power of a good heart with methods to developing healing compassion for ourselves and others. If interested and for more info, please send me an email and I will inform you when the next 8-week module for this group is scheduled to begin.
