Wednesday Night Series
FREEDOM FROM STRESS: KEEPING A PEACEFUL MIND
When we face difficult situations in life, we feel stressed out and frustrated. We feel that the situation itself is our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from inside the mind.
If we responded to difficulty with a positive or peaceful mind, it would not be problematic for us. Problems arise only if we respond to difficulties with a negative state of mind. Therefore, if we want to be free from problems, we must transform our mind.
Please join us to learn practical methods and meditations that will reduce stress, improve relationships, and create a more harmonious life. With Maxine Wright, Resident Teacher. Based on How to Solve Our Human Problems by Geshe K. Gyatso
