Transforming Difficulties into Growth - Meditation Classes

With Kadam John McBretney, Resident Teacher

Mondays 7.30pm - 8.45pm

From 12 February 2024

At Heruka Kadampa Meditation Centre, Golders Green

Amidst life's challenges and pains, it's natural to feel overwhelmed and discouraged. We often find ourselves trapped in negativity, longing for change. But what if we could find happiness despite our difficulties?

By facing life's challenges with a positive, peaceful mindset, they no longer appear as insurmountable problems but rather opportunities for spiritual growth. Mastering the skill of transforming adversity becomes a tool not only to overcome negativity but also to cultivate and fortify your mental well-being.

Instead of feeling stuck and powerless, you'll uncover an inner strength to turn suffering into positive states of mind like love, compassion, and joy. Through developing your mind in this way, you will not only find peace for yourself, but develop the methods to have a profound positive effect on all of those around you.

Positive Thinking and Meditation

With Kadam Ai Peng McBretney

Wednesdays 12.30pm - 1.15pm

At Heruka Kadampa Meditation Centre, Golders Green

Is your glass half full or half empty? Whether we experience a happy, meaningful life full of exciting challenges and opportunities for growth, or a stressful, unhappy life full of difficulties and problems, all depends on our way of thinking! Happiness and suffering are states of mind; with meditation, we can train ourselves to think positively and to maintain an authentic experience of inner peace, even in difficult situations, and discover the potential for lasting happiness and joy within our own minds.

Learn how to be positive, stress-free and relaxed through meditation!

The classes are in-person and everybody is welcome.

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.


FAQs about meditation classes

Everyone is welcome

"Happiness is a part of the mind that experiences inner peace, or peace of mind, so the real source of happiness must lie within the mind, not in external conditions."
