The Way Things Really Are

with Resident Teacher Kelsang Lhasang ~ recording available till Saturday, 11th July

the way things really are

Out of confusion we misperceive the way things exist, fabricate an identity and world, and live within this hallucination as if it were the truth. We view our limitations as real and we feel stuck.

But our limitations and the world we normally perceive are not real and as solid as they seem to be. The actual nature of things is emptiness, which means things do not exist outside the mind, but are mere appearances arising from our mind. Understanding this naturally frees us from our sense of limitation and insecurity and fills us with a sense of possibility and joy.

On this day course learn how to experience deep lasting happiness through meditation on emptiness of the self. This will help set us free from our limiting conceptions and enable us to become the person we wish to be. This course will be of particular benefit for those attending ‘Introduction to Tantra’ half day course.

Course Fee: £18 (£10.80 concession*), free for members plus and benefactors
