“In reality, most of our emotional problems are nothing more than a failure to accept things as they are — in which case it is patient acceptance, rather than attempting to change externals, that is the solution.” ~ Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, How to Solve Our Human Problems
Patient acceptance is often seen as a weak and passive mind, but actually, nothing could be further than the truth. Patient acceptance is a powerful mind that makes us as strong and stable as a mountain. When we lack patience — we are easily disturbed by the challenges we face. Developing patience, we gain the ability to remain peaceful, flexible, and clear-minded, no matter what the circumstances. From this place our wisdom will enable us to respond to life’s difficulties in the most skillful and productive way. This course includes guided meditation, talks, Q & A and refreshments served during the break. No meditation experience necessary. Everyone Welcome.
