Buddha has told us that we live in the realm of desire, that desire pervades our every decision, every moment.  Some of our desires are wholesome and produce good results, but many are unwholesome and uncontrolled, giving rise to greed, possessiveness, acquisitiveness, craving and addictive behaviour.  Buddha taught how to identify and eventually abandon our uncontrolled desires and as a result enjoy a deep and lasting contentment.

This half-day course will offer special insight into powerful methods for letting go of uncontrolled desire and bringing greater peace and happines into our lives.  Open to everyone, regardless of previous experience.
