Pure Freedom: Letting Go of the Eight Worldly Concerns
December 5: The eight worldly concerns and their impact on our happiness
December 12: Real courage
December 19: Focusing on what matters
* December 26 is the beginning of our annual Stages of the Path to Enlightenment retreat (http://meditationinsouthcarolina.org/special-events/lamrim-retreat/). Please join us at 7pm for an introduction!
The eight worldly concerns are eight anxieties that make it difficult for us to maintain a happy mind. When our life is constrained by these eight worries, we lose sight of what matters to us the most and spend our energy pursuing things that we know, in our heart of hearts, won’t bring the lasting satisfaction that we desire. By contrast, a life free from the eight worldly concerns is a life spent focusing on the things we really care about, the things that take us closer to our best self.
During this course, Gen Nyema will explain what the eight worldly concerns are, how to recognize them within our own minds, and how to start to eliminate them from our daily life.
Everyone is welcome to attend. No prior experience required.
