Keeping the Peace ~ Diffusing Conflict
Saturday 7th April
10.30am – 1pm
THIS EVENT IS HELD AT OUR CITY CENTRE SPACE, 125 Portland Street, M1 4QD – Directions can be found here
It can be difficult to maintain a calm and peaceful mind when we are faced with challenging and difficult circumstances.
Often our frustration and anger arises easily and before we know it we are lost in sea of conflicting emotions and judgements.
In Buddha’s teachings we can begin to recognise our unpleasant feelings before they are out of control and therefore easier to let go of.
These teachings and meditations are very practical for our daily lives and yet there benefits are endless. These half day courses are open to everyone.
“If someone harms us and we become angry, our anger cannot undo the harm that was done. Although it may seem that anger is justified and that it yields some satisfaction, if we check closely we will see that there is never any point in getting angry” from Ocean of Nectar by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
