How to Let Go of Painful Emotions

Followed by optional Zoom discussions 5 minutes after class (details below)

This class is rebroadcast on Tuesday at 11:15am (sold separately)

In Buddhism, painful emotions are known as ‘delusions’. They are called this precisely because when we are experiencing them our perceptions are distorted. Under their influence we see things incorrectly and act inappropriately. These deluded minds, eg. anger, desirous attachment, jealousy, and deluded pride, are completely unreliable states of mind. Don’t trust them! They are guaranteed to create unhappiness for ourself and others. This is why we need to learn skillful methods for recognizing them and letting them go.
In this series we will be applying the wisdom gained from the meditation on the clarity of the mind to learning how to let go of painful emotions. We will explore some of the key delusions and train in practical methods for skillfully overcoming them. How much happier our life will be if we are no longer held captive by these painful emotions!
