Meditation and Letting Go of Stress
In this chaotic world, is it possible to be free of stress and worry? Yes it is!
It’s nearly impossible in our modern busy lives to meet anyone who doesn’t experience some form of stress. Few things can be more debilitating and we all know the toll it can take on us both mentally and physically.
Through the practice of meditation, we can transform stressful situations into opportunities for growth and become the person we’ve always wanted to be. In this series of guided meditations and talks we will receive clear guidance on how through meditation we can let go of stress. Through gaining insight into our mind we can even let go of the underlying causes of stress and get to the point where we even enjoy situations we previously found unenjoyable, now seeing them as opportunities for growth.

Responding to the Suffering of the World: A Spiritual Perspective
Climate instability, violence, injustice, poverty, war, the threat of extinction... The world is in crisis and the extent of suffering is overwhelming. Mostly our response is one of either hopelessness or denial, and we can see the results of these responses in our ever increasing addictions - to drugs, alcohol, distractions, and escapism.
Buddha’s profound analysis of the nature and inevitability of suffering enables us to respond with the exact opposite of helplessness, a powerful positive energy to actually address crisis. With a spiritual perspective solutions become available. We can eradicate the inner causes of our suffering and thereby compassionately help others to do the same. The state of the world can energize us to seize the opportunity to make a difference. Buddha’s extraordinary insight shows us how. If not now, when?
