How to Dispel Confusion from our Mind

We all crave a sense of certainty and clarity in our lives. If only we knew what reality is  we could live at one with it. Then we would have fewer problems with anxiety and alienation, and that deep sense of being out of touch with ourselves and our world. We want certainty but at times  all we get is confusion. Buddha’s response to this dilemma is unique. He teaches us how to understand reality correctly and, how to live with wisdom. We can discover fundamental truths and use these to guide our way through life. All we need is Buddha’s special insights and a willingness to step out of our normal mental habits. Then we can discover the freedom and happiness that comes from knowing how everything actually exists.We will begin to understand the wisdom of “emptiness” – and how to identify and let go of exactly what we get confused about.

Parenting – Getting ready for the Holidays

Parenting is hard! There is no doubt about that. Being a parent means being responsible for a great many things, including the education and wellbeing of other little beings. This, as well as the relentless routine that tends to go  along with being a parent, can leave you feeling anxious or overwhelmed, sometimes with frayed temper and not knowing how to handle tricky situations.  

One of the most important parts of parenting is learning how to manage your own emotions, so that you can manage your child’s! Buddha taught that we need a solid basis of inner peace in our own mind to be able to help others with theirs. It is only through meditation that we can cultivate such a basis of inner peace and through this develop the attributes of patience, wisdom and compassion that are essential for good parenting, and for living a happier life in general!

In this course Dr Colinda Linde and Laurie Parr, both long time Buddhist practitioners, parents and professionals in the field of psychology and child-rearing, will teach practical methods on how we can develop inner peace and more, in our parenting lives.
