Letting Go of Resentment and GuiltLetting Go of  Resentment and Guilt

London – Saturday 3 November
10am – 1pm

Guelph – Saturday 17 November
1pm – 4pm

The suffering of repressed anger, resentment, and the suffering of guilt are all too common nowadays. These negative minds are not only harmful, they have no beneficial purpose. Instead of following these habitual negative thoughts and feelings, through contemplation and meditation, we can learn to look at these situations from another perspective and thereby transform what was once unpleasant, into an opportunity for spiritual growth. With this transformation, we will gain a positive, peaceful mind. Essential training for people of the modern world!

The course is divided into two 75 minute sessions which will include guided meditation and teaching, with a break for refreshments.

Everyone is welcome!
