Wednesdays @ 10:30 – 11:30am with Gen Kelsang Chogden
Transform your mind and you can transform your day….even your life! Buddha’s teachings explain exactly how to achieve this.
This class is a wonderful and insightful presentation of how we can apply meditation and Buddhism to our busy modern lifestyles. The teachings are practical advice that we can immediately put into practice to find greater love, compassion and wisdom in our everyday lives. There is usually time for Q&A and class discussion.
Creating Balance in a Busy Life
Most of our daily problems arise from unbalanced minds such as uncontrolled desire and irritation. If we learn to maintain a well-balanced mind our meetings with others will be pleasant, our friendships long-lasting and our mind will remain peaceful in the midst of our busy daily life.

Loving others is principally an attitude of mind, and the way in which we express it depends upon the needs, wishes and situations of each individual, as well as our karmic connection with them. If we make a special determination to cherish those with whom we are going to spend our time, and then put this determination into practice, our cherishing will be grounded and sincere. This will make our holidays harmonious and meaningful.
