FREE PUBLIC TALKS, followed by series of classes
We have so many fears these days: fears for ourselves, our family and friends, and for our world. Sometimes these fears are manifest and sometimes they are beneath the surface, giving rise to anxiety and insecurity. What do we turn to protect us from fear and anxiety? What can we rely upon? According to Buddha’s teachings it is possible to transcend our fears and attain a state of fearlessness.
FREE PUBLIC TALKS on September 2nd, 3rd and 4th

TRUSTWORTHY GUIDE FOR UNCERTAIN TIMES
with Peter Kurczynski
Life can be full of change and other sources of anxiety, discontent or discouragement. When times are uncertain, we need a reliable guide who can show us how to attain genuine inner peace. Buddha is such a guide, who can lead us step by step into the joy and peace that is our potential. We will discover the importance of having a teacher of Buddhist meditation, and how to begin to cultivate relationships here and now that are conducive to our inner development.
In situations of conflict, we tend to become angry easily. We even think anger will help us ‘win’ our battles, and we rely on it as if it were our trusted friend. The mind of anger, however, leaves a trail of broken relationships, lost opportunities, and painful feelings in its wake. In this class, we will learn skillful techniques from Buddhist meditation to remain balanced, flexible and peaceful in the midst of difficult situations and conflicts, thereby overcoming our real enemy, the painful mind of anger itself.
