Understanding and Transforming Suffering

$15, free for supporting members

Teaching and meditations on the Four Noble Truths

Whether it is our daily life worries and upsets, our deeper grief or depression or our rage, all our sufferings can be transformed into empowering states of mind that increase our inner strength, love and joy. The first step in transforming our suffering is understanding its source. Where does our suffering come from? Is it in the body? The mind? Can it be removed?

In this series we will journey through Buddha’s teaching on the Four Noble Truths, in which both the problem of suffering as well as its solution are presented with extraordinary clarity. Through teachings and explorations of our own mind in meditation, we will discover that the main cause of suffering is not the external conditions, but rather our internal responses. In other words, suffering comes from our mind. Understanding this crucial point opens us up to our ability to transform and eventually remove suffering altogether  thereby allowing us to discover our potential for real and lasting joy.
