Course descriptions

How to understand the mind

This course will look at the Buddhist way of understanding the mind so that we can identify and abandon harmful, painful, feelings and replace them with peaceful, beneficial ones.
Through developing a correct understanding of the nature and function of the mind we will be able to respond to difficult external conditions with a positive or peaceful mind and in this way solve many of our daily problems.
wk 1) What is our mind?
wk 2) Finding peace
wk 3) Understanding the relationship between the mind and external objects
wk 4) Letting go of anxiety

Dealing with difficult people

Dealing with people is such a big part of our lives. Often we find others difficult to live or work with because our priorities differ, our opinions clash and we feel unable to fulfil our wishes. As a result, we then blame others for our feeling stressed and miserable.

In these classes, we will learn how we can change and dramatically improve all our relationships simply by changing our way of viewing others and therefore relating differently to them. By applying these practical methods in our daily life, our relationships will become harmonious and satisfying for everyone involved and difficult people will disappear from our lives.

Kelsang Shri has been an ordained Buddhist nun for many years. She brings to her teachings a sincere interest in helping others, a clear and insightful understanding of how meditation can improve our daily life, and a skilful way of making the teachings accessible and relevant to our busy modern lives.

Shri is known for her kindness, warmth and sincere approach.
