Humility and our Buddha nature

We have all made mistakes, but we are not who we once were. By dwelling on past mistakes and problems, we harm ourselves even long after the error was made.

Furthermore, an inability to let go of past insults and other emotional wounds drains us of energy, makes our mind tight, and prevents us from experiencing inner peace and happiness. So why do we let our past mistakes and problems burden us?

During this course, we will learn special techniques to let go of the past and relate to our potential to grow and change, feel peace at our heart and be better able to heal troubled relationships.
