K18048 : LEARNING ABOUT RESILIENCE26.04.2018 - 29.04.2018
Course 4M with Thay Phap An and Sister Song Nghiem
Our own happiness depends a lot on cultivating our inner strengths, so that we may rely on greater resiliency during difficult times. In this class we will learn to discover our inner strengths by using different meditation techniques. We will study the three complexes: the inferiority complex, the superiority complex and the equality complex, which all strengthen the illusion of a separate self and form the roots of spiritual instability. Our rigid ideas of what constitutes happiness are also hindrances keeping us from being happy. The teaching of interbeing helps us let go of one-dimensional perspectives and become more stable and solid.
