General Program Class Live-stream
Our General Program class live-stream is on both Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings. The topic for this Spring and Summer is Healing the World – the Supreme Good Heart.
With these contemplations and meditations, we will experience of the Bodhisattva’s perfections of: giving, moral discipline, patience, effort, concentration and wisdom – practices to increase our own positive happy and peaceful minds and that will turn empower us to benefit others – our family, friends, community – and eventually, all living beings.
Classes are all standalone individual classes that are presented in a series. You do not need to attend the full series to drop into a class. Drop in with Zoom or come along to the Centre!
Building Our Self Confidence with Meditation
There are countless benefits to meditation, and one that we will focus on this October is self -confidence that arises from our meditation practice. Along with this self confidence, we will experience an inner joy, a happy mind, that gives us energy and a positive mind. Venerable Geshe-la says, “Everybody needs to be good-natured with a good heart.” Through developing positive, confident minds with regular meditation practice, we ourselves can be good-natured, good-hearted, joyful and confident.
Kelsang Kunden will give teachings and meditations so that we can practice and become familiar with generating that inner confidence and joy in our own mind, our own heart. In this way, we can realize our own potential for inner peace and happiness. Everyone welcome.
The Peace of Concentration
“When the mind is free from the clouds of distracting conceptions it becomes bright and clear, like a cloudless sky”
~ Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
We all have the ability to concentrate and focus. Concentration makes our mind lucid and peaceful. When we focus our mind in a positive way, we experience a positive and peaceful mind. Feelings of unease and discontent vanish and feelings of inner peace and happiness increase. We learn how to develop this ability through meditation practice. Through familiarity with meditation practice we will able to maintain this inner peace throughout all our daily activities.
Join Resident Teacher Kelsang Kunden this November with meditation practices to improve your concentration, your own inner peace and happiness.
