When faced with having to have difficult conversations we may try avoiding them, or we may repress our true feelings, or we may lash out in anger, or all of the above! Ultimately, none of these approaches will lead to happiness.

Buddha emphasized the need for skillful and beneficial actions in all circumstances, and in particular he taught four special approaches to dealing with difficulties. Known as the four “siddhis”, or attainments, these four types of enlightened actions will empower us with the energy and skill we need to deal with conflict and confrontation. They will allow us to navigate even the most challenging situations calmly and wisely, and they will allow us to speak with clarity and compassion. This workshop will cover all four approaches and introduce special meditations to help us connect with each approach more deeply.

*Following the State and San Diego County guidelines, we have prepared our dharma center to be as safe as possible for those who would like to take refuge in person in their spiritual home. We have arranged our seating to be 6 feet apart, and created outdoor seating for those who would like to safely socialize after the classes.

Masks are required and pre-registration is preferred to allow minimal contact.
