When we discuss healing from a Buddhist perspective it is not just about healing the body. We need to understand what has created the imbalance in our lives that requires healing. Ultimately all illness comes from the mind. Buddha taught that unwholesome thinking and actions are the cause of all suffering, whether it is physical or emotional.

Often we experience difficulties and ill health that do not seem to come from our thoughts and actions in this life. The Buddha taught that karma from previous lives can be experienced in this life. We cannot change the past, however we can change our reactions and attitudes in the present. We can heal these imbalances, which in the future will lead us to become free of ill health in body and mind, and ultimately completely free of all karma. The talk will examine the attitudes and actions that can lead us to that ultimate healing.
