Fearless Life:Overcoming Stress & Anxiety
Sundays, Feb 3 – March 31
8-week course with Gen Kelsang Rigpa
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.

Part 2: Transform Anxiety
March 10 Build Inner Strength
March 17 Confidence: Our Limitless Potential
March 24 Transform Fear with Compassion
March 31 Spiritual Power

Overcoming Perfectionism, Self-Criticism & Discouragement

NEW COURSE: 5 Weeks April 7 – May 5

April 7 PUBLIC TALK with Gen Rigpa – Perfectionism: Expectations and Pride
April 14 Self-Criticism: Patience and Potential
April 21 Discouragement: Reality and Rejoicing
April 28 The Healing Practice of Taking
May 5 The Big Picture: Review Q & A

We sometimes set up an all or nothing approach to success, feeling if we are not able do something perfectly then we are a failure. This is a dangerous mind-set, because it can lead to excessive self-criticism and discouragement, which blocks our capacity for learning and authentic spiritual growth. Through Buddhist psychology we can gain insight into this process and learn practical methods that will help us accept who and where we are, and make progress towards becoming the person we wish to be.
