Transforming Adversity - a Monday Evening Class Series
About the Series The classes in this four-week series (June 3rd-24th) are based on the book The New Eight Steps to Happiness. Register for the entire series, or just drop in! When the people we interact with in daily life are treating us with kindness and respect, it's quite easy to have positive feelings toward them. However, as long as our wish for others to be happy is conditional, we will not be able to maintain our love and kindness toward them when relationships inevitably become stressful or contentious. These classes will focus on effective ways to cultivate universal love in the midst the difficult interpersonal situations we deal with regularly. This is the essential practice of transforming adverse conditions into the spiritual path. Register here for the series or simply drop in for any class you wish to attend: $12 at the door - $6 students and seniors 62+. About the Teacher Gen Kelsang Khedrub, a Western Buddhist monk, has been studying and practicing Kadampa Buddhism under Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s guidance for many years.
