Venue: Samye Ling


Love them or hate them, we all have emotions! Left unmastered they can cause a lot of trouble both internally and externally. Yet, “no mud, no lotus” - we can work with, or transform, all of them to improve our quality of life.

In this course, we will cover the five basic features of how to make order out of chaos in our lives. They are self-awareness, self-mastery, compassion, motivation and social skills. The latter involves learning how to use meditation in a social context.

Special attention will be given to “vedanas” highlighting the foundation of mindfulness to do with feeling. We can train our awareness to untie the knots of entanglement and be less reactive and more responsive. Help can be given where help is needed both internally and to others.

This course at springtime presents how to develop an optimistic outlook for the year ahead.
