… there is no greater method for experiencing peace of mind and happiness than to understand and meditate on emptiness.”

 – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Not to be missed!

In his wisdom teachings, Buddha reveals the true nature of reality – emptiness, which opens the door to limitless possibility.  Of all Buddha’s teachings, none are more far-reaching and transformative than his teachings on emptiness.  It is through our training in and understanding of emptiness that we can come to permanently solve all our problems and be of real benefit to others.

During this special course Gen Kelsang Zoma will reveal teachings and guide powerful meditations on emptiness.  By coming to understand this profound object of knowledge we will gradually be led to the ultimate peace of nirvana.

This course is designed for those who wish to refresh their understanding and experience of training in emptiness and for those who have little or no experience of this profound subject. Everyone is welcome.
