Living Meaningfully – Dying Joyfully weekend course with Gen Tharpa
In our society, death and dying are often perceived as inherently negative topics of conversation and are often shrouded in confusion, grief and suffering. However, Buddhism offers a completely different perspective based on a profound understanding of the process of dying, the meaning of death, and what we can do to protect ourself and help others during such a critical passage in our life.

Growing your Good Heart – Bodhichitta with Gen Kelsang Gomchen, Resident Teacher of KMC London
The teachings and meditations will be based on Guide to the Bodhisattva’s way of Life.
Contemplating the verses in Shantideva’s Guide has a profoundly liberating effect on the mind. Gen Gomchen will explain their meaning in a way that is practical and relevant to everyday life and help us to move from suffering and conflict to happiness and peace, and gradually enter, make progress along and complete the path to enlightenment.
