Always rely upon a happy mind alone” – Geshe Checkewa

This course will make the spiritual advice of the ancient lojong (or training the mind) masters practical and relevant to the modern-day practitioner.

We will learn how we can overcome many of our bad habits of mind, be mindful or more positive and constructive ways of thinking while learning practical mental tools that will help us to integrate this practice into everyday life.

The teachings will be based on a set of pith instructions composed by Geshe Checkewa. They are particularly suited for modern times where distractions are plentiful, time to meditate is minimal and world is becoming increasingly toxic. It is said that although such times can make conventional spiritual practice very difficult, the training the mind practitioner can transform all these adverse conditions into opportunities for spiritual growth.

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.
