Teachings & Guided Meditations
with Kadampa Buddhist nun Gen Kelsang Lhachog | $10/8 conc
“When we have practiced many different meditations we shall experience their effects, but it is the meditation on death that leaves the biggest impression on our mind.”
We are alive, therefore we die. This is the simplest most obvious truth of our existence, and yet we rarely consider it and more often than not choose to ignore it. Those who are actually faced with a life threatening situation can often transform it into a meaningful experience. In a similar way, regular contemplation of our death can be liberating, helping us to reduce our everyday worries and fears. In these classes, learn how to become aware of our own mortality in a way that will enrich and transform your life.

Classes held at Khedrubje Centre offers the chance to learn how to train in meditation. As our mind becomes more peaceful through this practice, we develop the ability to stay happy and positive all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances.
Each class is drop-in and stands on its own merits – you don’t need to attend a whole monthly course. Classes consist of two guided meditations, simple instructions on how to meditate and advice on how to keep the peace of mind you develop in meditation. There is plenty of opportunity to discuss and ask questions. No special clothes are needed and you are welcome to sit in a chair or on a cushion on the floor. After class you are welcome to stay for a chat over tea. There is a shop at each class selling books, CDs and other items.
