When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides, and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso – The New Meditation Handbook.
Our programmes are open to everyone – newcomers and experienced meditators, young, old, working, retired, individuals and families. We welcome people from all faiths and those who do not subscribe to any faith. You do not have to be a Buddhist to take part in our programme and to benefit from it.
*Regular weekly classes are held in Palmerston North, Dannevirke, Levin and Whanganui; with short courses in Feilding over the year. We are planning two short courses of 4-6 weeks (once a week) in New Plymouth in the second half of the year.
weekend course in Brisbane with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong: 22nd – 23rd september
If we want to be truly happy we need to work with our mind, gradually transforming it into love, compassion, and wisdom. On this course, Gen-la Dekyong will give teachings on how we can use meditation and reliance to transform our mind into these powerful positive states. This course will include transmission and commentary to the ‘Request to the Lord of all Lineages’ prayer which we can use to help us develop these states of mind that bring us closer to the peace and happiness experienced by all the enlightened beings.
