Fear fearless fearlessly

Living Fearlessly’

Saturday 19th June, 10am-1pm
with Resident Teacher & Buddhist nun Gen Kelsang Leksang

The wisdom of no-self.

It is because we misunderstand our own nature that we experience fear and think and act in self- limiting ways that make us unhappy and entrap us in a prison of our own mind.

Understanding how the self actually exists liberates us from our fears and limitations and allows us to become the person we wish to be.

What are the benefits of this course?

– Learn to stop grasping at a limited self

– Dissolve your fears by understanding the nature of self and all phenonmena

– Gain insight into how your mind creates yourself and your world

The course is suitable for beginners and those with more experience. It will include guided meditations and practical advice. It will give you tried and tested tools and meditation practices for finding happiness. Everyone is welcome.

Change world thought

‘Change your world thought by thought

Saturday 26th June, 10am-1pm
with Resident Teacher & Buddhist nun Gen Kelsang Leksang
in-person and online options available*; £15 per person, no fee for Centre members

On this course we will explore the topic of karma and learn how developing a belief in karma, empowers us to take charge of our own happiness and even create a better world.

“Buddha taught that the mind has the power to create all pleasant and unpleasant objects. The world is the result of the karma, or actions, of the beings who inhabit it. A pure world is the result of pure actions and an impure world is the result of impure actions. Since all actions are created by mind, ultimately everything, including the world itself, is created by mind. There is no creator other than the mind”.

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Loss

Dealing with Loss’

Saturday 3rd July, 10am-1pm
with Resident Teacher & Buddhist nun Gen Kelsang Leksang
in-person and online options available*; £15 per person, no fee for Centre members

“The end of meeting is parting”.

Buddha Shakyamuni

Losing the people and things that we love and dealing with unwanted changes in our lives is an experience that we often find deeply painful. Although we long to find lasting pleasure, comfort and security in other people and things, in the end none of them can stay with us forever.

Although we understand that change is inevitable and we cannot hold on to things forever, still we become upset and unhappy when it happens. Why is this? and how can we begin to change this view?

On this course we will learn how, through meditation, we can develop a special wisdom that will help us to deal with the inevitable winds of change and loss in our lives. Through this we can gradually become a strong, wise and peaceful person for the benefit of ourself and others.

The course is suitable for beginners and those with more experience. It will include guided meditations and practical advice. It will give you tried and tested tools and meditation practices for finding happiness. Everyone is welcome.

Declutter your mind’

Saturday 24th July, 11am-12.30pm

At present our mind has the nature of movement. This means that we flit from thought to thought without control. This state of inner turbulence makes our mind feel very uncomfortable.

On this course, we will learn these meditations and make our inner mental space like a clear blue sky, the nature of peace. Learn the essential techniques for decluttering your mind, and fulfill your wishes for a focused and happy life.
