Dealing with Destructive Emotions
This workshop explores destructive emotions of anger, attachment, pride and jealousy – what they are, why they are viewed as negative and how best to work with them with the aim of lessening their destructive consequences in our daily lives. Learn to recognise and release attitudes & behaviours that hold you back from being more content and happy.
Facility Cost: $85/75 members includes lunch & refreshments
Teacher: Venerable Namgyel
Venerable Lobsang Namgyel, from Australia, has been living in India and studying Buddhism here for more than 29 years with such Masters as His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche; Denma Locho Rinpoche, Choden Rinpoche, Choeding Rinpoche, Geshe Sonam Rinchen and Gen Lamrimpa. Having completed four years of lam rim retreats, as well as many tantric retreats, Ven. Namgyel has 25 years of experience teaching Buddhism in FPMT Centres in India, Nepal, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Sweden, Finland and the USA. He’s well loved by students for his humour and open heart.
Here’s what our beloved Ani Rita had to say after teaching with him at Root Institute India 2007:
“Wherever he goes and teaches, he is always asked to come back. Because he is in contact with his own good heart, he is able to touch people on a level that goes much deeper than just intellectual understanding. Having done a lot of individual retreats he has familiarized and integrated the topics in his way of living, and so teaches out of experience. Through his humour he relaxes people totally, and even difficult topics seem a piece of cake. He is especially loved for the deep concern that he has, and shows, for the wellbeing of the participants of the course, and puts a lot of energy and time into helping them to find a way to practice what suits them.”
