Freedom From Painful Emotions
With Gen Norden
Learn practical methods eliminate negative states of mind, and experience emotional freedom, stability, peace and joy.
Talks, guided meditation discussion. Open to everyone. No experience necessary.
According to Buddha our suffering comes about due to the uncontrolled and painful states of mind, known as the delusions. During our summer term, we will be focusing on Buddha’s illuminating teachings on these painful minds and how to overcome them. In each session we will focus on how to deal with a particular delusion, learning practical methods to reduce its hold on us and in this way allowing us to experience a deep and satisfying emotional freedom. As our delusions diminish we draw closer to the person we wish to be, a joyful, confident and loving person. Everyone welcome.
