Freedom from Painful Emotions
Painful emotions such as stress, anxiety, depression and loneliness cause us much unhappiness and stop us from being able to truly enjoy our life. This once–a-month, four-part series will let us investigate these painful feelings and learn the simple techniques employed in Buddhist meditation and mindfulness to let go of negative emotions, past pain and bad habits, and to cultivate positive states of mind. Through applying these instructions to our daily life, we can all learn to live a happier and more fulfilling life.
In each class, we will focus on how to deal with a particular painful emotion, 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.
Working Through Feelings of Loneliness and Loss
We can easily feel as if we are isolated and separated so that we suffer from loneliness with a yearning to feel a sense of connection with others. This feeling of loneliness and the pain of loss can then lead to other unpeaceful states of mind which in turn can lead to unhealthy thoughts and habits. Through Buddha’s practical teachings, we can learn how to overcome our unpeaceful states of mind and replace them with positive, happy states of mind and begin to fulfill our deepest wishes for peace and happiness. This is possible because in truth we are all naturally and profoundly interconnected. By learning to understand and feel this connection we’ll reduce our sense of isolation, allowing a natural closeness and authentic love for others to arise. Through this wisdom passed down from Buddha, we can transform our outlook on life, heal our relationships, and lay the foundation for universal love, which is the key to solving not only our own problems but those of our world as well.
