How to Solve our Human Problems

With Kadam John McBretney, Resident Teacher of Heruka KMC

Mondays 7.30 - 8.45pm

At Heruka Kadampa Meditation Centre

Weekly classes from Monday 31 October

In this busy world, our experiences of happiness are fleeting and short-lived, while inner peace eludes us completely. Our negative states of mind, such as uncontrolled desire and anger, create endless problems for ourselves and others, and prevent us from fulfilling our deepest wishes. Buddha's popular teaching on the Four Noble Truths offers clear and simple solutions, guiding us to an oasis of peace within our hearts.
Kadam John will explain from his experience of putting Buddha's teachings into practice how to find:

  • freedom from mental and physical pain, including stress, worry, anger and depression;
  • more satisfying and successful relationships;
  • lasting happiness and fulfilment;
  • a meaningful and joyful life.

These in-person classes are suitable for all levels.

Modern Buddhism - The Path of Compassion and Wisdom

With Ralph Sueppel

Tuesdays 7.30 - 8.45pm

At Heruka Kadampa Meditation Centre

Weekly classes from Tuesday 1 November

Although we want to be happy all the time we do not know how to do this, and we are always destroying our own happiness by developing anger, negative views and negative intentions. Happiness and suffering are states of mind and so their main causes are not to be found outside the mind. If we want to be truly happy and free from suffering, we must learn how to control our mind. Through meditation we can gain profound realizations through which we can solve our daily problems of delusions and accomplish the real meaning of human life.

These in-person classes are suitable for all levels.

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."

How to Transform Your Life by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

Once the conditions allow, in-person, local meditation classes will resume. These classes are taught in groups and everyone is welcome; you do not need to be a Buddhist to attend or to benefit from the meditations and methods taught.

The classes are well-suited to those new to meditation - all meditations are guided and are clearly explained by the teacher before the meditation begins.

Each class also includes a talk covering a specific aspect of Buddha's teachings. These topics are all scientific methods to improve our human nature and good qualities. For more information about these topics you can download a free copy of one of the books used to teach the classes, such as How to Transform Your Life, by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

While our London meditation venues are closed, everyone is welcome to join our online meditation classes.
