What I Can and Cannot Control with Kaya Mindlin
What I Can and Cannot Control – Me, Others, and the Divine. This class offers key teaching from the doctrine of karma on the three sources of karma. She offers meaningful insight to help us consider how to look at world-wide problems, and personal challenges or stressors, that are free from a sense of intense anxiety, longing, regret or anger. How do we take the right action and responsibility for ourselves, our families and our communities without the sense that “it’s all up to us”, what do we do when anxiety about that over which we have no control takes over? This teaching on Karma is a key to lifelong wisdom and a sense of freedom.
