Healing Craving & Addiction ~ taking control from within
“Attachment is the principal cause of dissatisfaction. It never causes contentment, only restlessness and discontent.” ~Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, How to Understand the Mind.
Discover the inner peace and mental freedom that comes from learning how to let go of habits of craving, attachment and addiction. We all experience craving in our lives, whether its for people, food, smartphones, or unhealthy substances. If we don’t have skillful ways of dealing with this habit of craving, it can easily lead to strong attachment and addictive tendencies. In this way it can easily undermine our peace of mind, happiness and self-esteem. This course will include guided meditation, talks, time for questions and refreshments during the break.
