Using Buddhist psychology, discover how to bring forth your innate good qualities, and overcome the anxiety, distraction and depression of modern life.

Discover what holds us back in achieving our innate human potential, and how to develop self-esteem that is authentic, lasting, and stable. By using practical techniques to overcome destructive habits, you will become grounded in your own positive qualities. Our relationships with others will naturally become harmonious, and our projects and passions more constructive.

Drawing on Buddhist psychology, we examine how to bring forth our innate qualities, and how to overcome the distraction and anxiety that hamper our daily life and oppresses our relationships. As we learn to overcome destructive habits, we will naturally be released from our stress and anxiety.

What is happiness? Three types: hedonic, eudemonic, optimal flourishing. Goal setting for long-term happiness, reflecting your own values.

What distracts us from our goals? Eight worldly concerns and how to overcome them. How to find your own authentic path.

Based on an innate sense of ethical conduct and fairness, develop concentration and focus, and see through the stress and spin with wisdom.

Buddhist psychology has radical yet highly effective strategies to overcome depression, anxiety, angst – even boredom!

Understanding the habit cycle, and using mindfulness to stop feeding the monster, and instead develop positive habits for flourishing.

Whether you are religious or not – we all want to make our life worthwhile, meaningful and satisfying. With a few key ingredients we can achieve this, no matter how limited our ‘spare time’.

“This quality of mind, known as Buddha-nature, gives us the potential to free ourselves completely from all suffering and the causes of suffering and to achieve any happiness we wish, including the peerless happiness of enlightenment. Since the mind has all this potential, we do not need to feel depressed or hopeless. It is not as if we have to experience problems forever. We have incredible freedom to develop our mind in any way that we wish. It is simply a question of finding the right way to use the potential of our mind.

– Lama Zopa Rinpoche
