“There is no evil greater than anger, and no virtue greater than patience. Therefore, I should strive in various ways to become familiar with the practice of patience.” – Shantideva, quoted in How to Solve Our Human Problems

Do you sometimes find yourself in situations in which it seems impossible to keep a happy mind? Even after getting out of an unhealthy relationship or a bad situation, do you still find yourself tormented by resentments that continue to burn, even years later? If so, then this retreat is for you!

In this introductory retreat, we will explore tried and tested methods for letting go of, not repressing, anger, fear and resentment, without taking it out on others. The practice of patient acceptance, when combined with wisdom and compassion, is the most direct and effective way to work with our unhappy feelings, learn from them, and then heal our mind and our heart so that we can finally get some peace.
