How Much Can We Change?
One frustration many people come up against is the prospect of making personal change. This time of year, we like making new year’s resolutions, and often for a short time, our resolve to change goes well. But it’s hard to make it stick.

As the changes we tried to make unwind, we may begin to think “I can’t change!” We may even see it as a pattern: wanting to change, trying to change, failing to change. And we stop trying.

Cultivating Our Capacity for Profound Change

Buddha explained that the reason we feel stuck in patterns of behavior is because we grasp at our nature as fixed and unchanging. When we think that way, change is hard to sustain.  Through putting Buddha’s teachings into practice, and cultivating our view in meditation, we discover that change is possible! We can let go of the underlying causes of our negative mental habits, and we discover positive change, even profound change, is possible. We can become the person we wish to be!

Fearless Life:Overcoming Stress & Anxiety
Is it possible, in such a chaotic world, to be free of feeling stressed out and anxious? Yes it is. With Buddhist meditation we can uncover the underlying causes of stress and anxiety and learn how to let them go. Through training our mind we can approach seemingly fear-inducing situations with a sense of confidence, and even enjoyment.
