We live in busy and stressful times. Anxiety, worries and difficulties are common experiences for many people.
However, through learning how to be patient, we can maintain a relatively peaceful and calm mind when encountering difficulties. What’s more, if we practice patience in daily life, we actually purify the negative potentialities in the mind that cause us to experience problems. The purpose of practicing patience is to stop our mind becoming unhappy when things go wrong and to prevent future problems.
From within Buddha’s teachings there are a number of topics that help to strengthen our patience – such as an understanding of Samsara, karma, moral discipline and how we can purify our mind. These topics will also be introduced.
In this series of classes we will learn how to practice patience and purify negativity. One thing is certain, we have many opportunities in daily life to do so!
About the classes
We will explore this topic, in this series of Monday classes during November. Each class can be attended individually or as part or the series and consists of an explanation of meditation, two guided meditations, a teaching, some discussion and an opportunity to ask questions.
As these teachings originate from Buddha, there will be short prayer in English during the class. However, you do not need to be a Buddhist or have any particular belief or faith to join the class and participate. Buddha taught for everyone.
Most people sit on chairs, though some meditation cushions are available. No previous experience is needed and you can “drop-in” to any class on Mondays. Tea is served from 17.45 and everyone is welcome 🙂
