About the class
This will be a new experience for those who feel they have no time to meditate – “Yes, that’s me!” you say? Then these sessions are for you. We are working with the mind only in our sessions so meditation is the indispensable method we will be encouraging you to practice.
Only ninety minutes to set your life right each week. We will be exploring challenging ways to thrive in these challenging times: wishing to develop courage in the face of adversity; learning to grow inner strength and become inwardly patient when things fall apart and our world is shaken – everybody needs a good heart and to be good-natured for success in developing these qualities.
About these matters Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche has written: “Transforming adverse conditions into the path is vital in these degenerate times because we are constantly surrounded by difficulties like a candle flame exposed to the wind, blown first from this direction, then from that.
There is no way of avoiding difficult situations, but if we can change our attitude towards them they will no longer be problems for us. Instead of allowing adversities to make us unhappy and discouraged we can use them to enhance our experience of the stages of the spiritual path, and thereby maintain a pure and peaceful mind all the time.”
There will be a team-teaching approach with Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab and other Teachers in discussion, short talks, meditations and opportunity to share experiences and find answers to your questions.
