How to Enjoy a Happy and Meaningful Life

Monday English meditation drop in class with buddhist monk Gen Kelsang Palden.

We all want to live a life with meaning and we all wish for lasting happiness and peace. These classes offer practical  meditations that create peace and happiness from within and make our human life extremely meaningful.

The “Stages of the Path to Enlightenment”, or “Lamrim”, are a powerful series of contemplative meditations revealing spiritual truths that awaken our love, compassion and understanding. This is a wonderful opportunity to get a deep understanding of how to find real meaning and happiness.

Meditation topics include how precious and rare our human life is, understanding impermanence, karma and where our problems come from. We will also learn a sequence of meditations that open our heart of universal love and compassion.

The classes are suitable for beginners as well as advanced practitioners and each class is self contained. Both cushions and chairs are available for you to sit on. The classes are drop-in classes, so no need to book in advance. Everybody welcome!
