Our lives have been deeply impacted by the current Covid-19 pandemic. As many of us are facing a period of great worry, loneliness and uncertainty about our future, Spiritual Director Kushok Lobsang Dhamchoe invites us to join him for a 4-week on-line course exploring solutions to our suffering on both a mental and physical level.
Kushok will offer wisdom and practical techniques to cope with and reduce feelings of worry and stress, physical and mental exercises to boost immunity and promote health, and meditations to release our negative emotion and cultivate love and compassion. In addition, Kushok will offer advice on how to make friends with our problems, transforming seemingly negative circumstances into an opportunity for learning, peace and even joy.
Weekly topics include:
– Practices to build physical and mental strength
– Breaking the chains of worry and anxiety
– Transforming our experience of adverse conditions
– Cultivating peace, courage and joy
We are not alone in our suffering, but deeply interconnected. We sincerely hope that you will join us for this powerful opportunity to transform your circumstances and your mind.
Anyone with an interest in meditation and/or alternative means of coping during COVID-19. All are welcome.
