Event Description

The Riddle of Happiness is a 9-day period, presentingBuddhist teachings and practice through weekend retreats, daily sessions and guided meditations, given by Ven. Robina Courtin, a rare opportunity to explore the nature of mind in a Western way – fighting fire with fire, using mind and intellect to crack the riddle of happiness.

 

According to Buddha we all have potential for clarity, contentment and love. In fact, these qualities are our natural state and the development of those, for one’s own sake and for the sake of others, is what spiritual practice is all about.

Our main stumbling blocks are the deeply held assumptions that, first of all, anger, depression and fear are innate within us and therefore impossible to eliminate; and, second, that suffering and happiness come from the outside. As long as we believe this, we’ll always remain victims.

During this period of teachings, meditations and discussions, we will investigate Buddha’s model of the mind, learning how to distinguish between positive and negative emotions and how to eliminate those that take us down and how to develop those that bring happiness to ourselves and to others.Special
