Description

Knowing your own Mind: The Key to Peace & Happiness half-day course with Gen Kelsang Tharpa
Saturday 9 April | 10am - 1pm

Everybody wants to be happy and free from problems. Normally we try to achieve this by using external methods, but no matter how materially wealthy, powerful, or highly respected we become we shall never find freedom from problems. Happiness and suffering are states of mind, therefore if we are to find the happiness we seek we must learn to understand our mind.

This half-day course will challenge our ordinary way of relating to our life and provide a meaningful opportunity to explore Buddha’s teachings on the nature and function of the mind and how it has the power to create our world of experiences.

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


About the Teacher

GEN THARPA is a close disciple of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and a senior teacher of the New Kadampa Tradition who has been teaching Modern Buddhism in Spain, Portugal and England for over 30 years. He has great ability to convey the profound Buddhist path of wisdom and compassion with clarity and the depth that comes from his personal experience. Both beginners and more senior students enjoy Gen Tharpa’s profound understanding of Dharma as well as his simplicity, wise counsel and good sense of humour. He is a living example of how to practice the Kadampa way of life in the modern world.



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.
