with Kadam Donna Campanelli

Of all Buddha’s teachings, none are more far-reaching and transformative than the teachings on emptiness, the true nature of reality. It is through our understanding of emptiness – in particular, the freedom that we experience as a result – that we can then come to solve all our problems and be of maximum benefit to others.

“With emptiness, anything is possible.”

In this series of talks and guided meditations, we will explore this liberating wisdom. Each session will also include discussion and an opportunity to ask questions.

Freedom From Painful Emotions

Imagine a life completely free from anger, jealousy, heartache, dread, loneliness and all the other painful states of mind that cause us so much suffering. We often feel as if it isn’t possible to become free from these painful emotions. But it is definitely possible. Why? Because they are all states of mind, and Buddhist meditation gives us the tools to change our mind.

In this series, we will dedicate each week to going after a specific one of these toxic minds – called ‘delusions’ – discovering why it arises and how through our meditation practice we can completely eliminate it from our mind. These practical methods will allow us to experience a deep and satisfying emotional freedom, and give us the skill to be the person we wish to be, positive, joyful, confident and loving. Everyone welcome!
