Meditation and Freedom from Painful Emotions

Imagine a life completely free from anger, jealousy, heartache, dread, loneliness and all the other painful states of mind that cause us so much suffering. We often feel as if it isn’t possible to become free from these painful emotions. But it is definitely possible. Why? Because they are all states of mind, and Buddhist meditation gives us the tools to change our mind.

In this series, we will dedicate each  week to going after a specific one of these toxic minds – called “delusions” – discovering why it arises and how through our meditation practice we can completely eliminate it from our mind.  These practical methods will allow us to experience a deep and satisfying emotional freedom, and give us the skill to be the person we wish to be, positive, joyful, confident and loving.

  • May 31         Transforming Ourselves
  • June 7         Transforming Uncontrolled Desire
  • June 17         Love vs. Attachment
