This course is essential watching for anyone who feels just too buffeted and anxious – by the endless stresses of modern life. Through different meditations – from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition and by mindful practice Stephan Pende gives us a ‘toolkit’ for how to reset our internal thermostat which, through daily practice, will help us to develop greater inner strength and resilience. This, in turn, will make us happier and more relaxed, making us more ‘open’ to life and more confidence to move about in our world.
