Description

Free Trial Foundation Programme Class on The New Eight Steps to Happiness

Monday 14th May | 7.30 - 9.30pm


Everyone is welcome to participate in a free trial session of our new Foundation Programme classes with Buddhist monk, Gen Kelsang Gomchen. Discover how to develop a good heart and improve the capacity of your mind through applying ancient Buddhist mind-training techniques.

This free taster class launches the start of the Foundation Programme (FP) of Kadampa Buddhism in Kensington which provides an opportunity to deepen our understanding and practice of the spiritual path through a dynamic combination of study, teachings, meditation and group discussion. Watch a video of the benefits of this programme run by Kadampa Meditation Centre, New York.

From May 2018, we will be studying the text, “The New Eight Steps to Happiness” by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, which explains in detail how to how to solve our daily problems with wisdom and eventually transform our ordinary self-centered attitude into the perfect love and compassion of a Buddha. The teachings are incredibly practical with advice on how to integrate the instructions into busy daily life.

The evening will begin with some traditional preparatory practices and a guided meditation. This will be followed by a practical teaching based on a section from The New Eight Steps to Happiness and a brief discussion in pairs about the ideas raised. After the class, there will be an opportunity to stay behind and ask any questions that you may have about the programme and for those who wish, to enrol.

Please note: This is not a drop-in class and involves enrolling (which gives you all the benefits of KMC London Membership), and making a commitment to try to come each week. We look forward to welcoming you soon! For more information, please do not hesitate to contact us: epc@kmclondon.org
