This workshop will help us to embrace challenges, confusion and change as a part of awakening. Ayya Yeshe will share techniques, humourous stories and spiritual wisdom in her ‘straight from the heart’ style to help us balance and integrate both good and bad/light and dark and become more at peace, whole, happy, open hearted and altruistic. Basic meditation and some sacred chants also shared. Based on authentic Buddhists texts.
