Fri 16th – Sunday 18th November Living Meaningfully-Dying Joyfully 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.

with Paul Jenkins The resident Teacher of Tara KMC
Anxiety, stress & depression are unpleasant feelings that affects most people in varying degrees. If we are not careful, our responses 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 and be free from these negative and destructive states of mind.
