Obstacles can be blessings

We typically regard obstacles as hindrances which we should avoid at all costs. But by changing the way we view obstacles, they can assist us to better understand our lives, and help us to relate more effectively to our experiences.

Lama Tsering will provide us with advice on how we can transform our experience of obstacles, so we can use them to develop insight into the nature of our lives, and to inspire and propel us to realising our highest potential.
