Overcoming Negative Emotions - Saturday 04 December 2021 with Gen Kelsang Namkhyen

Painful emotions such as stress, anxiety, depression and loneliness cause us much unhappiness and stop us from being able to truly enjoy our life. Often we feel stuck or paralysed by our negative states of mind and simply do not see any way out.

Buddha skilfully explained that our lives will not materially change if we do not develop inner peace and let go of our negative emotions. But to develop such a state of inner peace we need to investigate the actual roots of these painful emotions. Only through meditation are we able to fully understand how to get rid of negative emotions and to cultivate positive states of mind.

In this course, visiting teacher Gen Kelsang Namkhyen, will give us practical methods for how we can deal with our painful emotions and how through meditating on the root cause of such emotions we are ultimately able to eliminate them all together.
