Transforming Hate: Practicing Non-Violence and Skillful Action
Integrating meditation into our life helps us deal with our own experiences of anger, fear, trauma, grief and discouragement; and it will help us move through the world with clarity and compassion, able to defuse conflict, and inspire others with non-violent activity of body, speech and mind.
A traditional Buddhist practice known as “transforming adverse conditions into the path” will be explained. Through this training, rather than feeling discouraged or enraged by all the problems and pain we see around us, and within us, we discover a capacity to turn that negativity around and to actually use it to empower our mind for positive change. This class will include talks and guided meditations with plenty of time for questions. No meditation experience is necessary.
