Solving Our Problems With The Blissful Wisdom of Tantra
In this day and age, we have no sense of the vastness of our human potential – that each one of us can have a mind pervaded by boundless joy, wisdom, love, and compassion. Modern Buddhism, as practiced at our Center, is a joyful path leading to a joyful goal. Buddha’s Tantric teachings give us a clear and beautiful vision of who we can be and, in the practice known as ‘correct imagination’, the method for actualizing that extraordinary potential swiftly.
In this series we will explore the practice of Tantra and learn how to transform problems into opportunities and see how everything in our life, our relationships, jobs, and enjoyments can be integrated into a powerful and joyful process of inner development. We are going to activate the power of joy to improve every facet of our life. In the process we will discover how we can use this life to bring immense joy and meaning to ourself and others.

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.
