When we are faced with adversity, how can we call upon our inner strength and build on this strength? How can we shift our focus from clinging to our attachment to our own safety and to rest in equanimity?
The Dharma helps us work with the challenges of life transforming obstacles into awakening. Our experience of impermanence and the changing nature of life throws us into the depths of what truly matters.
Please join us as we explore how to allow adversity to drive us deeper into the spiritual path and genuine well being.
