Pomaia, Italy: Disarming the Mind retreat
April 21 @ 8:30 pm - April 25 @ 12:30 pm CEST
Working with Anger for a Happier Life
a residential retreat
with Ven. Thubten Chodron
Can we use our upsetting emotions and difficult situations as growth material to improve our lives and those around us? Can we take disturbing feelings and transform them into causes of happiness? YES, WE CAN! It requires a lot of courage and determination, but Buddhists and scientists alike reassure us that this delicate alchemy is possible,
When we’re overwhelmed by negative emotions, such as anger, we lose control of our bodies, speech, and minds. These disturbing states of mind have the power to distort reality and draw us into harmful behavior towards ourselves and towards others, creating suffering for ourselves and everyone else.
Venerable Thubten Chodron guides to shine the light of awareness on the subject of anger, familiarizing ourselves with this mental affliction and how it manifests in our lives. She teaches remedies that we can skillfully apply to cure our minds from it.
