About the event

What is our response to the suffering and cruelty we see all around us in our world? Discouragement, fear, grief, rage …? When we find ourselves caught up in painful, overwhelming minds is there anything that we can do? Yes!

In this course, Margaret Hoyle will explain and guide meditations on the astonishing practice known as ‘transforming adverse conditions into the path’. This is the practice we all need right now. Through this training, rather than feeling discouraged by all the problems and pain we see around us, and within us, we discover a capacity to turn that negativity on its head, and to actually use it to empower our mind. The result is that instead of feeling stuck and helpless, we experience an inner ability to transform suffering into powerful, positive states of mind, such as love, compassion and joy. This power enables us to not only grow spiritually, but also to exude a powerful positive influence on our world.
