“You should know sufferings. You should abandon origins. You should attain cessations. You should practice the path.” – Buddha, Sutra of the Four Noble Truths

Do you ever feel like you just want to be happy, but the harder you try to get certain things, the more unhappy you become? Usually, we tend to blame external situations or other people for our suffering and problems, but if we let go of the distractions and negativities in our own mind, external influences will have less and less power to make us miserable. These classes will help us to see the underlying causes of our mental pain and dissatisfaction, then take a solution-oriented approach to letting go of the mental habits that keep us stuck. Start at the beginning of the series if you can, but if you miss the beginning, then start when you are able.

“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 ever 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 old resentments that continue to burn, even years later? If so, then these classes are for you! In them, we will explore tried and tested methods for letting go of, not repressing, anger and resentment, without taking it out on others. The practice of patient acceptance, when combined with wisdom and compassion, is the most 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.
