The Power of Patience: Tuesdays from 6:30 to 7:30pm with Gen Khedrub

Patient acceptance is an inner strength that enables us to accept and grow from whatever life throws at us. Without cultivating patient acceptance we remain vulnerable to anxiety and frustration, and it is difficult for us to maintain peaceful relationships with others. If on the other hand we understand what true patience is and its extraordinary power and value, we will be confident to practise patience in daily life.

In this series of classes we will explore Buddhist teachings and meditations that will give you practical methods for practicing patience.

March 1 - The psychology of frustration

March 8 - What is patience?

March 15 - Learning to accept

March 22 - Being patient with ourself

March 29 - Freedom through patience
