Meditation is essential for human happiness. Happiness depends on a peaceful mind, and a peaceful mind comes from the practice of meditation. You can find the happy meaningful life you long for through practising meditations, that are especially designed for busy modern life.

March / April - Overcoming bad habits

Bad habits bring mental pain and suffering, and also affect the people around us. Through Buddha’s teachings we can begin to understand why compulsive behaviour arises and, most importantly, how to let it go and live the life we wish for.

In this course we will learn how to develop self-confidence, being patient with our shortcomings and to use the creative power of our own mind.

Start of the series: March, 2nd Overcoming bad habits: Attend this special evening with guest speaker Gen Rabten!
Topics include:
how to be happy with ourself, accepting our shortcomings, the mechanism of change, how bad habits develop and what they tell about ourself, the mechanism of change, bulding authentic self confidence

Dates: March, 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th
In April: 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th

May / June - Be the change

There is a difference between saying “Things should change” and BEING the change. Gen Palden will explain here how to use meditation to discover deep inner peace. This will revolutionize who we are and what we do. We will learn to change the world by transforming ourselves. In Buddhist practice, we understand meditation is not an escape from the world or just something to merely make us feel better. Instead, meditation is for radically transforming ourselves into a courageous, loving, wise person. In this way, we become a force for good in the world.
