The Program

HOW TO TRANSFORM ADVERSITY

MEDITATIONS TO TRANSFORM DIFFICULTIES INTO OPPORTUNITIES

This October we propose you the following meditation challenge. In this cycle of meditations we will learn to change our attitude towards the difficulties  in our life. Circumstances are neither good nor bad by themselves, but depend on us, our attitude and mental state. If we learn to react in a more patient and constructive way when we face difficulties, we will see how most of our problems disappear. Difficult circumstances do not have the power to make us suffer unless we react in a negative way, for example, with anger, frustration, sadness and depression. Normally, we believe that are external circumstances that determine our mental state. Buddhist wisdom teaches us that it is our mental attitude that determines our experiences. This cycle will serve to explore this practical wisdom.

ANCIENT WISDOM FOR YOUR DAILY PROBLEMS

One of the most precious and useful instructions Buddha gives us is that there is no direct relationship between our external circumstances and the happiness and suffering we experience. Although it is impossible to avoid most of the difficulties and problems we have,  we can avoid the unhappiness and frustration that they cause us. If we learn to control our mind, being patient with difficulties, we will discover the deep freedom and happiness that we can enjoy, even when things do not go well for us, or our wishes are not fulfilled.

Everyone is welcome!
