Beauty of Patience
Buddha Land Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Keighley
Saturday 19 August, 10am – 1pm
It is not possible control others, the weather, our employees or our employer – but you can learn to control your own mind, developing the happy mind of patience, that is able to transform every situation into an opportunity.
In these busy and difficult times the practice of patience is of supreme importance.
In situations of conflict, we tend to become frustrated or angry easily. We even think anger will help us ‘win’ our battles, and we rely on it as if it were our trusted friend. The mind of anger, however, leaves a trail of broken relationships, lost opportunities, and painful feelings in its wake.
In this course, through teachings and guided meditations,we will learn skillful techniques to remain balanced, flexible and peaceful in the midst of difficult situations and conflicts, thereby overcoming our real enemy, the painful mind of anger itself. Please join us for this 1/2 day of learning about the beautiful, spacious mind of patience, the direct opponent to the mind of anger.
Workshops are a perfect way to both relax and develop internally. They are ideal for those who are new to meditation and those who would like to improve.
The cost of the workshop is £12 (GP Centre Card £5).
Refreshments are available in our World Peace Cafe during the workshop. Why not also stay for lunch afterwards?
