Overcoming the Blame Game : Seriously Thinking about Karma
Saturday May 20
Day Course 1-5pm
with Buddhist nun
“Karma” means action and this universal law explains how we create happiness or unhappiness. Learn how all our actions matter – both for ourselves and others. Deepen your conviction in the laws of karma to help abandon the causes of suffering and create the causes for happiness, both now and in the future.
When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as the problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the mind. If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive or peaceful mind, they would not be problems for us – indeed, we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development.
This day course will include two guided meditations, teachings and time for discussion. Light refreshments will be available. Everyone is welcome and you do not need to be a Buddhist to attend.
