In this confused and dangerous world, our experiences of happiness are fleeting and short-lived, while inner peace eludes us completely.  Negative states of mind create endless problems for ourselves and others, and prevent us from fulfilling our deepest wishes.

Buddha’s original and popular teaching on the Four Noble Truths offers a clear and simple solution, guiding us to an oasis of peace within our hearts, especially needed in these troubled times.

The Four Truths are actual scientific methods for improving human nature through developing the capacity of our mind thus enabling us to transform whatever circumstances we meet, good or bad, into a meaningful and fulfilling life.  Happiness and unhappiness have their origins in the mind itself and therefore by transforming our mind we can transform our experiences.

This talk is especially suitable for those with a scientific interest in the human mind and human behaviour.  Everybody welcome.
