Special Events

For someone special

By developing and maintaining compassion and wisdom in daily life, we can transform our lives, improve relationships and look behind the ordinary appearances of this life. In this way we can solve all our daily problems and find lasting inner peace.

Receive the essential teachings of Modern Buddhism based on the books and Festival teachings by the renowned meditation teacher, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Each event will include a guided meditation and practical advice on how to integrate the teachings into daily life. They are usually suitable for everyone. 

You can down load a free copy of the book Modern Buddhism at http://www.emodernbuddhism.com/

Suitable for complete beginners, these events will combine guided meditation with practical spiritual advice that you can apply immediately to your daily life to solve problems and find a deeper happiness.
