Practical Advice for a Happy Life

Letting Go of Anxiety

Many people suffer from feelings of fear and constant anxiety or are simply overwhelmed by the stress and demands of everyday life. In this course, we explore methods for developing self-confidence, courage, and joy with the help of mindfulness, meditations and ways of thinking derived from Buddha’s teachings. This will help us to become fearless in the face of adversity and deal with our negative emotions more wisely and effectively. We will focus on ways to free ourselves from the painful emotions which cause our suffering. Buddha called these uncontrolled and painful states of mind the delusions. Through the practice of meditation, we establish a basic inner peace and happiness which gives us the confidence to begin to improve our mind. Learning practical methods to reduce the power of these delusions 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.

The Confidence to Change

Rather than feeling insecure, angry, depressed, discouraged or helpless, we all want to be happy, joyful, confident and inspired. we all want to be more confident, courageous, happy, creative and so forth. But we find it difficult actually to change ourselves and to bring about the changes that we long for in our life. Buddha's teachings on the practice of joyful effort help us to understand what it is that we need to change as well as giving us confidence and skill to make the desired changes. Through applying these practical methods we can learn the skill to be the person we wish to be - positive, joyful, confident and loving.
