TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE AND LET GO OF STRESS
Have you had a stressful morning? Are you dealing with difficult people? Do you feel trapped by the experiences you have had in the past. In our busy lives we often don’t see the connection between our state of mind and our daily experiences. When our mind is peaceful our world is joyful but when our mind is disturbed or agitated we easily experience problems, stress and difficulties. This course will teach us practical methods and meditations for improving the mind and transforming our life into a blissful journey towards lasting peace and happiness.

TRANSFORMING RELATIONSHIPS AND SUFFERING
Many of the difficulties we experience in our relationships arise due to not accepting others for who they are. We often focus on their faults, thinking they should be other than what they are. In these classes we will learn profound meditations on love as the antidote to these critical minds. We also explore special teachings for transforming suffering and adversity. These practices help us to use the difficulties we encounter as the very means for improving ourselves emotionally and spiritually.
Each class begins with guided breathing meditation, to help settle the mind and let go of distractions.
Sachi is a member of the Teacher Training Program and presently teaches weekly classes at the Esquimalt Recreation Centre on Wednesday evening and Friday noon and at the Centre. Sachi’s background includes experience in human services, community music, and death midwifery.
