Meditations for modern life

With Ralph Sueppel

Tuesdays 7.30 - 8.45pm

This live online class teaches Buddhist meditations for happiness and success. Modern life can be overwhelming. Stress, anxiety and depression are widespread. Merely working harder or changing external circumstances cannot solve our human problems. Happiness and success depend on our state of mind and, hence, we must learn how to train our mind.

Meditations for a Kind Heart

With Mark Furman

Wednesdays 12.30 - 1.15pm

A kind heart is a special mental attitude that cherishes other people at least as much as we cherish ourself. It is grounded in the commonsense thinking: 'Just as I wish for happiness and not suffering, so to does everyone else. In this respect we are all exactly the same.' As Geshe Kelsang Gyatso says, "A good heart always gives good results."

Take Control, Choose Happiness

With Resident Teacher Kadam John McBretney

Thursday 7.30 - 8.30pm

Wouldn’t it be great if we could simply choose not to be unhappy? On this course we can learn how to make a determined choice to follow thoughts and ideas that lead to happiness and learn how not just be led by strong negative emotional habits. In this way we can wake up with happiness everyday and know that we can always do this. Imagine having the ability to always choose happiness, even when everything is going wrong. Everyone can learn to do this.

How does Kadampa meditation help?

Modern life is challenging and if we lack the inner resources to control our mind, we will inevitably find life stressful and difficult to manage, giving rise to feelings of anxiety, irritation and even loneliness and depression. This can make us feel unhappy and helpless, and it can also have an impact on our relationships as we become less able to cope constructively with disagreements and differences in our views and wishes.

Kadampa meditation gives us the solution. The meditations taught, and the teachings which help us to understand what to meditate on, give us techniques to understand where our unhappiness and problems are coming from and how to change them. Not only this, but over time, we will learn to transform difficult situations into opportunities for growth and development, so that instead of feeling powerless when faced with a difficult situation, we will come to welcome difficulties into our life as they provide the actual means with which to bring about positive change and spiritual development. In this way, peace and happiness will become our daily experience, and we will approach life with a new confidence and sense of purpose.

"If our mind is pure and peaceful we will be happy, regardless of our external circumstances, but if it is impure and unpeaceful we will never be happy, no matter how hard we try to change the external conditions."
