Thursday 30 Nov | Finding Peace & Positivity in a Troubled World | 7 – 8.15pm | Gen Kelsang Lekma | Kensington


Out of stock


When we look at our current world situation and see so much pain and problems, we can often feel helpless, overwhelmed and discouraged.

Through Buddha’s wisdom, we can begin to understand how our mind creates our reality and all our experiences. Understanding this if we train to view things in a positive way, we can learn and transform all difficulties into a rewarding and beneficial experience.

In this special day course we will learn how to turn negativity into a powerful force for empowering our mind. Instead of feeling stuck and helpless, we can use the challenges of modern life to develop positive states of mind such as compassion, wisdom and love. This not only makes us emotionally strong and joyful, but also enables us to bring happiness to those around us.

Everyone welcome.

Here are some common questions that people ask about our meditation classes. If you have any other questions please contact us and we will be happy to help you in anyway.

Q) What is meditation?

The purpose of meditation is to cultivate positive states of mind, conducive to peace and well-being, and overcome negative habits of mind. Happiness is a state of mind, therefore the real source of happiness lies in the mind, not in external conditions. When our mind is peaceful we are free from worries and mental discomfort, and we experience true happiness.

Meditation is a technique used by millions of people to develop a calm and peaceful mind. It reduces stress, anxiety, and other negative states of mind and promotes physical and mental well-being. The meditations we guide are non-sectarian, non-judgemental, and universal. They are simple and accepted methods to help people tackle the stress and anxiety associated with the challenges of modern daily life.
