Wednesday evenings
7pm – 8:30pm
@ AKBC in Guelph
with Gen Kelsang Kunden

Each class consists of guided meditations and teachings that we can contemplate and practice throughout the week. Each contemplation has a practical application to solve our daily problems. Through attending classes and putting effort into applying these teachings to our daily lives, we can make great progress increasing our own inner peace. Through engaging in meditation practice we can develop and maintain a peaceful mind all the time. If we have a peaceful mind all the time we will be happy all the time, regardless of whether our conditions are good or bad. Now is the time to train in inner peace and happiness by putting Buddha’s teachings into practice.

What to expect in a course

New Topics this Spring & Summer

Our series of classes from April to July are based on understanding how the world around us is a reflection of our mind, and gaining a deeper understanding of the mind itself. Through understanding our mind in this way, we can gain control over our mind and liberate ourself from the wild painful thoughts that give rise to anxiety, anger and other painful emotions. In this way we will open our mind to a joyful, creative and game changing approach to experiencing our lives and our relationships.

Class Series Topics

Developing Authentic Self-Confidence

Low self-esteem, fear and anxiety arise from identifying with a “faulty” and “limited self”. But this view of ourself is not coming from wisdom. By developing correct thoughts based on wisdom we will cultivate correct thoughts that give us an a deep an authentic experience of confidence. Join us  for meditaitons and contemplations and become a more confident person.

Some topics in this series:

1. Where does low self-esteem come from?
2. Freedom from Fear
3. Ignorance – the root of suffering
4. Finding Authentic Self Confidence

These classes are based on the book  The New Eight Steps to Happiness. Come along and learn how to make your life deeply meaningful.

The Mirror of Wisdom

By applying Buddha’s teachings to our modern daily lives, we can view the world, and living beings in a special way – as a reflection in the mirror of wisdom. By understanding how the world around us is a reflection of our own mind, we can learn to recognise our negative minds and to abandon them completely. With training, we will experience an inner ability to transform suffering into powerful, positive states of mind, such as love, compassion and joy.

Medicine for the Mind

The Buddhist vision for Radiant Mental Health

More and more these days it seems that everyone is “working on my mental health.” So many people are struggling with depression or anxiety, or insecurity or feelings of rejection. But what does it mean to be mentally healthy? What is a fully healthy mind? Do we even have an image of what that would be?

Medicine for the Mind

Actual mental health is much more than simply not being depressed or not being anxious. It is much more than simply being able to cope better with life. Through Buddha’s teachings on the mind we are given a vision of a fully healed mind, a vision of radiant mental health.

These classes are based on the books How to Solve Our Human Problems and  The New Eight Steps to Happiness. Come along and learn how to make your life deeply meaningful.

The classes are presented in a series but each class is stand-alone. You do not need to attend the full series to benefit from the classes.
