We know that when anger isn't addressed, we either explode with volatile words or behaviors or implode into depression and alienation. Is there another way to process, even to use, this intense experience? Buddhism says yes and offers many tools for examining and transforming situations that would normally provoke us. During this weekend course there will be presentations, meditations, discussions and personal exercises to meet this emotion in a different – less harmful and more effective way.

Explore ways to diffuse aggression and hostility while still keeping energy and momentum. Deal with the disappointments in life productively by learning how each painful moment can actually be a tool to open the heart to greater degrees of compassion for both oneself and others. VenerableYönten will facilitate this course in an experiential way that invitesquestions and collaboration as well as providing tried and true ancienttechniques in a modern and accessible format. Everyone is welcome and this course is suitable for those who are new to Buddhism.

Chenrezig Institute is a not for profit Buddhist study & retreat Centre in the Hinterland. Which also offers a Wellbeing Centre for non-religious courses towards health & happiness. Established 1974, Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

The Institute is home to a Tibetan Geshe (Lama), a large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreat goers and guests. Apart from the formal study programmes, Chenrezig Institute is a friendly yet peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or weeks in our varied accommodation. Visit our Gompa on the hill, past the prayer wheel, stroll along the bush paths or wander in the formal Garden Of Enlightenment & around the Stupas.

Enjoy an espresso & cake in the cafe or a vegetarian meal, pop into our shop or relax in our extensive library. Also below the carpark is our new addition 'The Wellbeing Centre' which provides courses focusing on cultivating physical, emotional and mental balance and wellbeing. They include authentic traditional and modern psychological approaches to health and lifestyle. They are suitable for everyone who maybe looking for genuine happiness and well-being in a non-religious framework. Teachers' availability subject to change; please refer for updated information.
