Join us for Dharma conversation with Venerable BomHyon Sunim over twoTuesday evenings (August 22, 29) when we will explore Dharma solutions together, in order to discover new ways to approach these very real life challenges with wisdom and compassion.

How can we respond skillfully when things don’t flow according to our expectations and we find ourselves stuck in feelings of frustration and helplessness, or blaming others?

What guidance does the Dharma offer on how to re-view our expectations when things turn out to be quite different to what we were imagining?

It is times like this when we might greatly benefit from our mindfulness practice, but instead, we often find ourselves overwhelmed by fear and anxiety.

How can we apply Dharma wisdom to see more clearly and respond more skillfully when things seem to be falling apart?

Is it really possible to cultivate compassion in these situations?

Teachers Profile:

Venerable Bom Hyon Sunim is from the Korean Zen tradition and is resident at the Korean Jong Bop Sa Temple in Sydney. Sunim has recently relocated to Sydney, having lived in Victoria for the past 8 years, where she was the resident teacher of the Bodhi Ahm Buddhist Centre and founded the Healthcare Chaplaincy program for the Buddhist Council. She is also the Senior Buddhist Chaplain for the Australian Defense Forces.

Sunim conducts regular teachings and retreats and continues to teach regularly with the Melbourne Sakya group. She is active in interfaith and welcomes engagement with all who are spiritually & ecologically motivated to live in right relationship to the planet & all beings.

All Sessions by Dana (donation).

Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The teachings flourish in an atmosphere of generosity and gratitude, and these qualities in turn support the growth of wisdom and compassion in the practitioner. The instructions and guidance for this course are offered without requesting a specified fee and it is up to individuals to determine the amount of dana they would like to offer. It can sometimes be easy to become confused when we are new to this and we wonder “how much should I give?” This is a relevant question in the material economy but an appropriate dana cannot be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and awareness of the costs and expenses associated with organising a course (e.g., administrative & venue costs).
