Life throws many difficult things our way which cause us worry, anxiety , stress and unhappiness. During this workshop we will learn how to develop inner refuge and spiritual power that will protect us from fears and anxieties about our own and others futures.
We try to protect ourselves and relieve our painful feelings by taking refuge in others and many modern panaceas. However this relief is temporary.
By taking refuge in Buddha’s teachings, his blessings and those who are sincerely trying to put his teachings into practice , we find a more profound peace and ultimately we can be permanently released from all disturbed and unhappy states of mind.
