Man pulling aside cloudy sky to reveal clear blue skyWe all have habitual emotions and ways of thinking that seem to make our stress and problems worse.  Buddhist psychology offers a clear explanation of these states of mind, which are called the delusions. Through learning to recognize the early stages of their development in our mind, these negative thought patterns can be weakened and replaced with positive peaceful states of mind.

In these classes, Gen Thekchen will explore how to transform these negative states of mind into positive ones both in meditation and in daily life.  Each class includes 2 guided meditations and a teaching.

As conscientious Dharma practitioners, we should observe our own shortcomings instead of being preoccupied with those of other people.
