Is the world we are presented with the best and sanest choice we can make? Is there an alternative to the straightjacket so many of us put ourselves in? In this course Ven. Robina will explore the reasons why we willingly bring such misery upon ourselves in order to be happy, and by asking what happiness really is she will give us tools to deconstruct our mental chains and review where we really want to go.
"A Sangha is a community of resistance, resisting the speed, violence and unwholesome ways of living that are prevalent in our society. Mindfulness is to protect ourselves and others. A good Sangha will lead us in the direction of harmony and awareness. The substance of the practice is most important. The forms can be adapted." ~ Thich Nhat Hahn
