We all experience problems and difficulties, from worries about work or family to problems associated with ill health and ageing. The practices of Thought Transformation (Tibetan: Lojong ) offer us the opportunity to utilise difficult situations productively within the spiritual path. They can help us to develop qualities such as patience, love, compassion and wisdom, which will contribute to our own happiness as well as putting us in a better position to truly benefit others.
Through a combination of presentation, meditation and discussion we will explore the practical application of ‘thought transformation’ within our daily lives and practice. We will be using 8 short verses containing the essence of thought transformation by the eleventh century meditation master, Langri Tangpa.
