transforming emotions

20 TO 27 March 2023  




How often have you been caught in a trap because your emotions got the better of you? We want to be happy, but over and over again, disturbing emotions get in the way. Why does this happen? Learn how Buddhism phsychology can help you to work and transform your emotions, so you can be an emotionally mature, calm and clear person.

From the Buddhist perspective, we are not victims of our world. Buddhism teaches that the world is something created by our own ideas, thoughts and actions. By being aware of our thinking patterns we recognized that have choices and can change our perception of the world and our reactions.

Usually we put the root of our problems outside ourselves, onto others - now we are asked to look inside and find new ways to develop inner peace and quality relationships.
