Description

Finding Freedom from Within

3-week series with Gen Kelsang Gomchen

£25 for the whole series or £10 drop-in (no need to book)

Wednesdays 7 - 8:30pm

This engaging four-week series will explore how we can use meditation, mindfulness and a practical application of Buddha’s timeless wisdom to find freedom from the negative emotions that too often crowd our mind and obstruct our peace.

Although it is most beneficial to attend the whole series, each week is self-contained and will explore a different internal challenge that many of us face. We will us a Buddhist understanding of the mind to unpick why we develop such habitual responses and then how we can channel our focus in a more constructive direction, moving towards real mental freedom.

Each session will start with a breathing meditation to settle the mind and then a talk exploring the topic of the week. This will be followed by a concluding meditation to help us take the teaching to heart and an opportunity to ask questions. Everyone is welcome, no previous experience is necessary.


Wed 11 September – Overcoming Attachment

Wed 18 September – Overcoming Jealousy
