with Buddhist nun Kelsang Chogma
Did you know that karma can be purified? We all have committed negative actions in the past. Those potentialities remain in our mental continuum and when they ripen we experience problems and suffering. We must protect ourself by purifying our negativity while we have the opportunity. Join this workshop to learn purification practices and become your own protector.

In Tantra, we focus on the fully evolved person we want to become, rather than the limited person we perceive ourself to be at present. We explore our potential for inner purity and learn to realize it through powerful meditations that have been passed down through an unbroken lineage from the time of Buddha. Everyone is welcome to learn about this pure spiritual practice!

Dealing with people is such a big part of our lives. What happens when we find others difficult to live or work with? Often our priorities differ, our opinions clash, conflicts can build and we can feel like another person is making us stressed and miserable. Buddha explains some clear methods for taking control back and realising that we can change our relationship with others by changing the way we view them. On this course, we will explore some powerful meditations for viewing others more constructively that will enable us to respond to what they do more effectively. These meditations give us the freedom to be at peace regardless of how others behave.
Sat 28 Apr 2:30-6pm
Anxiety is an unpleasant feeling that affects most people in varying degrees. The stronger our karmic tendency to feel anxious, the more negative our outlook on life becomes. If we are not careful, our anxiety response can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. On this course you will learn how to train your body and mind to respond differently to the perception of threat or danger. By training in various meditation techniques and constructive ways of looking at the situation we will gradually increase our experience of inner peace, which is the foundation of our happiness.
Sat 12 May 2:30-6pm
If we all long for more love in our lives, why do our relationships often produce a storm of painful emotions? Buddha explained that the problems and suffering we experience come from our deluded states of mind. In this day course we will learn how to distinguish love from attachment and other types of mind at play in our relationships with others. By increasing our love and diminishing our attachment we shall enjoy more happiness with others. Our life will become more balanced and meaningful. Everyone is welcome!
