About these classes:

The quality of your meditation depends on how well you understand your practice. Buddhism gives us a profoundly optimistic perspective on our lives and our potential. Our human mind is amazing, and if we learn to harness its power, we can put an end to all our suffering and problems, so that our experience becomes pure happiness – constant and indestructible.

Where should we start if we want to discover the effectiveness of these instructions for ourselves? It is essential that we learn to meditate. The better our meditation practice, the more access we have to our most subtle states of mind, where rapid and profound transformation is possible.

During this course, we will explore how to develop or improve a meditation practice that enables us to reap the rewards that come from training our minds.

  • Am I meditating correctly?
  • How can I stop my mind from racing?
  • Should I just not think about anything?

Meditation is a guaranteed way to bring us to a state of calm, inner peace and joy. Guaranteed.

But we need to learn how to do it right.

This course is designed to introduce you to the mechanics of meditation and then directly address any questions or misconceptions you may have about the process and function of meditation. This is your opportunity to get the clarity you need. Come with all your questions!

About these classes:

„We know that when our mind is impure because we are angry with our friend, at that moment we perceive him as bad; but when our mind is pure because we feel loving affection for the same friend, at that moment we perceive him as good.“

Modern Buddhism by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

We all know those days when we got up on the wrong side of the bed and everything is difficult. Have you ever thought about the relationship between the state of your mind and your experience of the world around you?

When you feel like you’re having a day like that, give yourself a little more space, don’t judge, react or act right away, just observe the irritated feeling in your mind. Stay with it for a while and experience it. It will eventually dissolve back into your mind and you will feel peace inside, even if you are facing difficulties on the outside.

Gen Khandro will explain why we feel angry and give practical techniques to develop and maintain a peaceful mind even when things go wrong.

These evenings are self-contained and you can join us at any time.
