“Transform adverse conditions into the path to enlightenment” – Geshe Chekewa


Join us for an inspiring public talk on how we can transform the difficulties we face in daily life into opportunities for personal growth and transformation!

Gen Gomchen will explain how by using the ancient mind training techniques of the past we can maintain a calm and peaceful mind in the face of adversity, use every situation to our advantage and make authentic spiritual progress amidst a busy city life.

The talk will consist of a guided meditation, practical application of ancient Buddhist wisdom to the modern day and an opportunity to ask questions at the end.

Not to be missed! Suitable for those both new and experienced.

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.
