Calm Your Mind

Find the solution to painful feelings

In these classes, we will learn practical advice on what to do when painful feelings arise in our mind e.g. how to:

  • not panic
  • take the time to see what is really going on in our mind
  • discover where our painful feelings come from
  • deal with difficulties with a calm and happy mind through simple meditations.

"Just as there is room in the sky for a thunderstorm, so there is room in the vast space of our mind for a few painful feelings; and just as a storm has no power to destroy the sky, so unpleasant feelings have no power to destroy our mind"

How to Solve Our Human Problems, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
