‘Modern Buddhism’

In-depth Meditation Classes, Wednesdays 7pm – 8.30pm with Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Leksang

In these weekly drop-in classes we will explore step by step the extraordinary methods Buddha taught for working with our mind. Through these methods we can learn how to develop a good heart and gain an understanding of the true nature of reality which will enable us to profoundly transform our life.

You don’t have to be Buddhist to benefit from the classes as they are specifically designed to be accessible to modern people of all backgrounds. All you need is a mind, and the wish to improve it!

These classes are based on the book Modern Buddhism Part I in which the author, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso says:

“Through reading and practising the instructions given in this book, people can solve their daily problems and maintain a happy mind all the time.”

Kind Request: please be aware that these sessions are intended for people living within the West Midlands region. If you have a Kadampa Centre closer to you we ask you to please support them instead. In this way all our Centres will still be here to serve their communities when this difficult period comes to an end. Thank you.

*Concessions: to reflect our wish to make these meditation classes as accessible as possible during these difficult times, we are providing this reduced class fee for those who need it. In return, we ask that you consider carefully whether this applies to you, recognising that all income generated goes towards our continued ability to provide these classes and enable our Centre to function.
