Discovering Buddhism is a two-year program comprising 14 modules that give a solid introduction to Buddhist psychology, philosophy, and practice. If you are interested in immersing yourself in Buddhism, this is the program for you. The emphasis is on all material being applicable in daily life and helping us develop more joy and happiness. Each module consists of several sessions with talks, guided meditations, and practice retreats led by our resident teacher Venerable Michael. 

“Transforming Problems” is the eleventh module of the two-year Discovering Buddhism program that started in February 2021. Even if you haven’t studied previous modules, you are more than welcome to join this module.

In this module we will consider well the disadvantages of self-cherishing and the advantages of cherishing others more than ourselves. Get inspired to practice caring more and more for others. Learn how to employ the special techniques of mind training, or lojong, as a means to transform problems into happiness and learn to like problems as much as ice cream.
