During this weekend intensive retreat, Geshe Lharampa Jamyang Nyima will guide us through the background and methodology of understanding the many faces of the destructive emotions such as anger, hatred, and violence from the Buddhist perspective, and will offer time-tested techniques for transforming these destructive emotions into patience, tolerance, love, and compassion.  Geshe la will unravel the profound meditative techniques practiced for centuries by both Buddhist contemplatives and scholars, and provide guidance on how to make them relevant to our modern day life of struggle, strife, stress, and anxiety.
