Don’t worry, be happy

This course is based on the text How to Solve our Human Problems, by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. We will explore profound and life changing meditations and daily life practices that enable us to cope with, and build inner strength for everyday life. Although this is a seven week course, you do not need to attend every session.

January 9 – February 6

New year, new you

The new year is a symbol of possibility. We wish to change and for our lives to go in a better direction but for that to happen we need to connect with the potential that exists within our minds. Meditation gives us the ability to become the person we wish to be: peaceful, kinder, more dynamic and confident, happier, more loving. Although you will benefit the most by attending all sessions, you are welcome to drop into any session of this course.

Teacher: Gen Nyingpo is an English Buddhist nun with over 20 year experience of teaching meditation.
