Learning from Difficult Encounters 

Throughout our daily lives, we encounter situations and individuals that seem to cause frustration, impatience and other negative emotions. However, as Lama Zopa Rinpoche advises, “if we have anger, then we should direct our attention to seeing that anger as the enemy and not the person who we think caused it. In fact, we should be grateful to that person for giving us the opportunity to further develop our Dharma practice.”Join us virtually or in-person at the Center to discuss techniques for learning from difficult situations and individuals. Through such practices, we can grow our wisdom and compassion.

Led by Paula Chichester.

This class will be offered via Zoom but you can always join at the Center and we can attend the class together via Zoom.

About Paula

As an adolescent in Berkeley in the 1960’s, Paula began her search for a means to shift the dominant paradigm of our perceptions of reality in order to survive the coming environmental chaos and resulting social unrest.

A decade later she met Lama Thubten Yeshe and told Lama that she wanted to become a mahasiddha.

Following the advice of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Paula embarked on a 40-year journey of study and retreats, including two long retreats of 3 and 4 years.

In the last 13 years, Paula has traveled in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa giving talks, leading meditations and meeting wonderful heart friends. She is happy to share her insights that make meditations full of joy, love, clarity and authenticity.
