Gen Shechog will return to teach week 3 & 4 of this series. series. 

Inner peace and contentment are elusive. We restlessly seek something or someone to bring us the happiness we long to experience.

In this series we will use Buddha’s timeless wisdom, to guide us towards unravelling the mechanisms in our mind that cause us to experience painful feelings of dissatisfaction and craving. We will explore clear and compelling methods to develop stable and enduring peace of mind.

The best way to enjoy a happy and meaningful life is to abandon negative attitudes and to think more positively. Buddha’s teachings give us the wisdom to identify and let go of the perspectives that keep us stuck in habitual, negative patterns of thought. By developing the skill to authentically transform our mind through meditation we can change the way we view our self, others and the world around us, and in this way become more flexible, light and happy in daily life.
