    10:30 am - 1:00 pm


with Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Leksang

Saturday 9th March – 10.30am – 1pm

Buddha long ago pointed out that though humans universally seek happiness it consistently eludes them, and though they seek to avoid suffering it falls upon them like rain.

The root of the problem, he taught, is a deep confusion about the nature of happiness and suffering and their causes.

In his famous teaching on the Four Noble Truths Buddha explained how all our suffering originates from our mind and how we can use our life to set ourselves free from it:

  • The truth about suffering
  • The true causes of suffering
  • How to achieve a true cessation of suffering
  • The true path that leads to that cessation
This course will provide a practical introduction to this extraordinary wisdom and will explain how we can start to let go of the actual causes of stress, anxiety and pain within our minds. We will explore how to transform all our daily experiences into the path to peace.

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.

Gen Kelsang Leksang is a dedicated disciple of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. She has been studying and teaching for over fifteen years and was appointed by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche as the Resident Teacher at KMC Birmingham in 2008. She is loved for her gentle and joyful approach and her sincere example.
