A LIFE LESS ORDINARY
with Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Leksang
Saturday 30th March – 10.30am – 1pm
Life can, at times, feel quite mundane and sometimes we find ourselves feeling like we are on a hamster wheel, unsure as to what it’s all about.
Buddha explains that the real meaning of life is to fulfill our deepest wish, which is to find deep and lasting happiness. This can only be achieved by awakening our potential for deep happiness and peace. But how do we do this?
On this course we will explore a special practice for making every day, every experience and eventually every moment meaningful. By learning to see things with eyes of faith, we can start to live a life less ordinary. We can learn to see much hope and beauty in this world. With faith we can see solutions and find a deep sense of purpose as well as develop a clear and peaceful mind.
We will learn how faith is not contrary to wisdom, as many assume but is actually something that goes hand in hand with wisdom. We’ll learn how to develop our faith and how to use only in our daily life, in order to transform our experiences into opportunities for inner growth and development.
Suitable for beginners and everyone welcome. The half day course consists of two one hour sessions (10:30-11:30am & 12-1pm) which include guided meditations and a talk on the topic. There is a half hour break in the middle for refreshments. You are welcome to arrive from 9:45am for pre-course refreshments and to stay after the course also to relax in the centre.
