Gain and Loss Praise and Blame Fame and Infamy Pleasure and Pain

How do we really get on in this world? Tossed around by gain, buffeted by loss, carried high by praise, cast down by blame, how can we not be ground under, lose all direction, confidence, and sense of purpose?

This course, based on Vajragupta’s hugely popular book Sailing the Worldly Winds, explores the Buddha’s compassionate yet uncompromising teaching on how to stand firm in the face of suffering, greed and hatred.

Using reflections, exercises and suggestions for daily practice, this course can help you find greater equanimity and perspective in the ups and downs – big and small – of everyday life.

The course session will be 1pm - 2pm and then there will be an optional session 2:pm - 2:30pm where will be have tea and discussion related to the course session.

Dana Economy. All our classes offering Buddhist teaching are by donation, because we believe that the Buddha's teachings should be freely given. We recommend a donation of £60 / £40 for this course, but we welcome you however much you can afford to give
