Short Trips to Hell: Understanding Negative Emotions
We all know how unsettling and painful it is to be under the sway of negative emotions. They can destroy relationships and create havoc in society. This presentation will enquire into the very nature of fear, anger, jealousy, suspicion and pride, among other states, and point to the steadiness of mind which negativity of any sort cannot touch.

Contemplative Living in the Modern World
Summary: For many centuries, cloistered communities in the East and West have been the primary centres of contemplative living. Fewer such communities exist today, yet many people with similar inclinations are functioning in the everyday world. What is contemplation? What does it meant to adopt a contemplative life? And how is it possible to live in such a way within the contemporary world?
