Join us for Christmas and New Year events
Sunday 23rd – Thursday 27th December
Christmas course – Growing your Good Heart
with Gen Gomchen Resident Teacher of KMC London
The teachings and meditations will be based on Guide to the Bodhisattva’s way of Life, a famous and universally loved poem for daily living that has inspired many generations of Buddhists and non-Buddhists. It reveals with poetic beauty and deep spiritual insight, the benefits of developing a supremely loving and compassionate mind and how we can become a source of benefit and inspiration for everyone we meet.
Contemplating the verses in Shantidevas 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 use this precious text to invoke special positive states of mind, move from suffering and conflict to happiness and peace, and gradually enter, make progress along and complete the path to enlightenment.
If you book the Christmas course and new Year course the night inbetween is free.

How wonderful! The New Year gives us the opportunity to reflect on the direction our life is taking and to be more clear about how we wish to change. Join us for this course to learn how you can rely on meditation, mindfulness and Buddhist wisdom to give yourself a renewed sense of purpose and meaning.
