Description

Giving from the Heart

Half-day Course with Gen Kelsang Gomchen | Sat 14th December | 10am - 1pm

Cost: £20

Followed by Christmas Lunch

This course will explore the Buddhist approach to authentic generosity. By learning to cultivate a mind of loving kindness and then expressing this mind in practical actions we can accumulate a great wealth of positive karma, bring increasing benefit to others and overcome many of our daily problems. By learning to engage in these mental trainings we can transform all our encounters with others into something meaningful and beneficial.

The course will include several guided meditations derived from the “Lojong” or “mind-training” tradition that can be reproduced at home, practical teachings that are directly relevant to modern life and an opportunity to ask questions.


ABOUT THE TEACHER

Gen Kelsang Gomchen is a qualified Kadampa practitioner and teacher of Kadampa Buddhism who has taught widely throughout the UK. He has received extensive teachings of both Sutra and Tantra including the empowerments of Highest Yoga Tantra from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. He has completed an intensive Special Teacher Training Programme with our General Spiritual Director, Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong, and engaged sincerely in meditation retreats on both Sutra and Tantra.

Gen Gomchen is known for his ability to inspire others through sincere practice and to present the deeper meanings of Venerable-Geshe-la’s books in a way that is practical and relevant to all who listen.


This course is suitable for everyone from complete beginners to experienced meditators.

What will each session consist of?
Each session will include a combination of teachings and guided meditations with an opportunity to ask questions at the end and socialize with like-minded people during the break time.

Do I need to bring anything or wear anything special?
No. All sessions will take place on chairs but there are optional cushions if you prefer to sit cross-legged. You don’t need to bring anything else with you, but some people like to take notes during the session, so feel free to bring a paper and pen.

What if I’m new to this?
Everyone is welcome to participate in this course and will benefit both new and experienced people alike. Our reception staff will happily recommend some follow on reading or classes after the course if you are interested.
