About these classes

This on-going series of classes will go step by step through all the extraordinary methods Buddha taught for working with our mind, developing a good heart, understanding our reality and discovering how we can profoundly transform it.

They are based on the book Modern Buddhism in which the author, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso says:
“Through reading and practising the instructions given in this book, people can solve their daily problems and maintain a happy mind all the time.”

You can download Modern Buddhism as a free Ebook here: http://emodernbuddhism.com/

You don’t have to be Buddhist to benefit from the classes as they are specifically designed to be accessible to people of all backgrounds.

Learning to Live Life Lightly

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

On this course, learn how to use the wisdom understanding emptiness to live in the conventional world lightly without grasping at it, developing the flexibility of mind to respond to situations in a constructive way.

Knowing that whatever appears to our mind is mere appearance, we weaken our self-grasping, the source of our suffering, and come to experience for ourself how meditation on emptiness is the universal solution to all our problems.

June 9     Resting your mind in the experience of emptiness
