Acceptance and Transformation
Learning to Dance with Life’s Problems
Normally we respond to problems with frustration and anger, but this response actually makes the problem worse. If instead of rejecting the situation we respond with acceptance, we give ourself the space to see its underlying causes. It is by addressing these causes that we learn to dance with life’s problems and the difficulties in our life become the means for us to fulfill our deepest wishes for happiness.
In this course we will train in Buddha’s path of radical acceptance and transformation. The course will be practical, allowing us to address directly our own life situation in meditation, contemplation and discussion.
