Talks laced with stories and meditations by Ciska.
Buddhism is much more than just a handful of meditations. These ancient teachings are in fact of all times, still very applicable to our present experience. I myself experienced a great sense of relief and a joy of recognition when I started to learn about it.
The Buddha knew how to expound his wisdom in a clear and direct way, always adapting his manner of speaking to his audience. Buddhist Psychology therefore is elaborate and precise; it covers all aspects of our human experience.

September 6: Nirvana – Your Inmost Place Of Peace
Nirvana is in fact your True Being. Literally, the word Nirvana means ‘blown out’, which refers to the extinguishing of all fires of desire. So, Nirvana is where all desires are transcended, and any restlessness is left behind. Finally, here is perfect peace. Maybe you already know intuitively there is a peaceful place inside yourself, which can never be disturbed. This is your pure being, your true source.
In this Buddhist talk, we will hear what the Buddha said about Nirvana, and come to understand its true meaning. But above all, you will have a taste yourself through a guided meditation; its timeless peace. What could be more precious than Nirvana?
He then expounded the Noble Eightfold Path, which includes Right View, Right Speech, Right Livelihood and so on.
When we hope to change our unhelpful habits, it is often more easily said than done, isn’t it?
