What is our response to trauma, pain, and the suffering we see inside of us and around us?  Do we find ourselves feeling helpless, discouraged, angry or overwhelmed?

In this 2-part series Kelsang Tsalden will give teachings and guide meditations on the powerful healing practice known as “transforming adverse conditions into the path”.  Discover how to turn around our usually negative reaction to pain and problems and redirect our mind towards positive change.  We can find power in pain to grow spiritually and create a deeply positive effect on those around us and even our world.

Individual class topics are:

  • Transforming Our Physical Pain (Oct 7 – 10)
  • Helping Others in Pain (Oct 14 – 17)
