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.
