Desire and Aversion: 2 week course

Presenter: Tina Ng

Wednesday 30 Jun & 7 Jul | 7-8pm

Via Zoom

Cost: By Donation

So much of our life is filled with wanting and not wanting: craving for what we like and pushing away what we don’t like. Wanting to be with this person and not wanting to be with this other person. From the moment we wake up, we are bombarded with internal and external stimuli for us to run after with desire or to run away from with aversion. This constant chase has become normalised and the stress that comes with it may seem a natural part of our life. But what happens when we start to understand and unravel these habitual tendencies? What happens when we learn how unskillful desires and aversions arise, how they are perpetuated, and importantly, how to be free from these entanglements? In this two week course, we will explore what the Buddha taught about craving and aversion, the process and the freedom from them.
