Dealing with Difficult People

Drawing from Buddha’s timeless teachings, this course offers practical tools and insights to transform our relationships with difficult people, whether they are family members, colleagues, friends, or strangers. Learning to respond skilfully to conflict, anger, and negativity, we will come to see that dealing with difficult people offers a chance for profound inner growth and development that could not have been achieved otherwise.

FAQ

Why do you charge for classes?

As a nonprofit organisation, fees for classes and member contributions are our only source of income.

What if I don't have money and I want to attend?

Everyone can participate in the classes regardless of ability to pay. Nobody is ever turned away for lack of funds. Please speak to us.

Do I need to have experience in meditation or Buddhism to attend the classes?

No. All you need is the wish to improve yourself and the quality of your life.

Do I have to be a Buddhist to benefit from meditation?

No. Anyone can learn basic meditation and experience the great benefits. Buddhism is a non-evangelical religion. Buddhists respect all people, and are happy to help anyone regardless of whether they subscribe to another faith, or to none.

Do I need to bring anything?

You do not need to bring any mats or wear any special clothing. Comfortable chairs are used for seating. If you wish to take notes, please bring a pen and notepad.

I’ve been coming to drop-in classes for a while. Is there a class which goes into more depth?

For those who want to deepen their experience of Buddhism, we also have the Foundation Program. The Foundation Program (FP) immerses us in Buddhist teachings by studying systematically one of five texts on the FP curriculum.
