Healing Anxiety and Depression

Virtual Events Virtual Events

Thursday 23 May @ 12:00 pm 1:30 pm

Using Buddhist psychology to cut through the root of sadness and fear, reveal the innate goodness and peace at the heart of our being.

Depression and anxiety are the pain system of the mind. In this course, we discover how to listen to what anxiety and depression are telling us, so we can remove their root causes, rather than just mask the symptoms. The root of these is our distorted and negative self-view. By developing a realistic appreciation of our innate human qualities, we will be able to overcome our fears and become happier and kinder human beings.

Topics include:
– Buddhist psychology as a science of the mind, naturally pure, yet polluted
– Investigate the nature of identity to develop natural confidence and self-worth
– Step-by-step methods to counter disturbing emotions
– Difference between attachment and love, craving and kindness
– Cultivating patience to overcome hostility and frustration
– How to listen to the message in depression and anxiety
– Methods to break the habit of worry and the toxic depression cycle
– Simple techniques to cultivate positive states of mind

This popular course is well into its fifteenth year. These methods are not just for Buddhists, they are universal and helpful for everyone. The classes are sequential, but you are most welcome to join at any time, as each class features a standalone topic.

“Remember that the nature of your mind is clear light, buddha nature, so you can be free from all problems. The delusions, all the mistakes of the mind, are all temporary. Even though delusions have a beginning, they can be ended. That is why stains, all suffering, which comes from delusions, can be pacified. Buddha explained all the methods and path to do that. By practicing that, you can definitely overcome them.”

– Lama Zopa Rinpoche
