Transform Your Life
with Meditation and Mindfulness
Creating the Life We Want
Exploring Karma, Emptiness, and Inspiration
Often when we look at our lives, we feel dissatisfied. We try to make changes but find ourselves stuck in the same ruts, experiencing the same old problems. In this series we will look at Buddha’s teachings on karma to help us understand why we experience particular sufferings and, more importantly, how we can create the conditions we long for, both internal and external. We will also learn how to “undo” past karma through the profound, yet simple, practice of purification.

- 20 Sept: Karma: How We Create Our Lives
- 27 Sept: Changing our future by purifying our negativity

Becoming the Person We Wish to Be
An Introduction to the Joyful, Imaginative Path of Tantra
In this 6 week course we embark upon the explanation of Buddha’s extraordinary teachings on tantra as presented in Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book Modern Buddhism. Geshe Kelsang has shown how we can integrate these powerful techniques into a modern daily life. Tantra is based on a deeply inspiring vision of what the human mind is capable of achieving. In this ongoing series we will learn to connect to this joyful and imaginative vision and tap into an understanding of limitless possibility. We will discover how to let go of our ordinary self-limiting perceptions, how to transform both problems and enjoyments into our spiritual training and inner growth and therefore how to fulfil our deepest wishes and begin to become the person we wish to be.
