When Life Gives You Lemons: Transforming Adversity Into the Spiritual Path

When Life Gives You Lemons:  Transforming Adversity Into the Spiritual Path

October 31:  What is patience?
November 7:  Seeing others as our teachers
November 14:  Accepting defeat
* No class on November 21 for Thanksgiving Holiday
November 28:  Offering the victory

As your grandmother might have once advised you, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”  From the point of view of our spiritual life, we can change that old saying to, “When life gives you lemons, transform adversity into your spiritual path.”

This class series will focus on what to do with those unpleasant situations that crop up — how do we make the most of them from a spiritual perspective?  Buddhist teacher Linda Atkinson will describe how to cultivate the mind of patience even in the most trying situations.

Class Format

Each class will begin with a brief guided meditation, followed by a short teaching.  There will be time at the end of class for question and answer and/or discussion.  Drop in for any class — no need to attend each class. Everyone is welcome.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
