Anyone is welcome to attend this event!
Based on the principles of the book "Restoring the Balance" by Akong Rinpoche, this course is suitable for all those who seek a better quality of life.
“Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional” - there will be presented a range of practices to help us accept painful circumstances with kindness and compassion, whilst challenging our habits of suffering unnecessarily.
Life is hard! On the outside we may seem very well but our inner life can be unnecessarily unhappy. We can restore balance to our inner life if we find out who we truly are, our true nature. We can slow down and inwardly, at least, find balance.
Alongside these teachings, there will be some instruction on coordination and how it is so important for our lives. The other subject will be impermanence and how to be flexible and adaptable rather than rigid and easily upset by change.
Traditionally the Buddhist teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless and those receiving the teachings practice generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the centre. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given, freely from the heart, in appreciation for receiving the precious instructions that can help better one’s life and the lives of others.
Making a donation directly helps to provide all the necessary conditions for the study and practice of meditation and Buddhism, bringing teachers to teach and maintaining a spiritual community as well as contributing to the considerable expenses that are involved in running a centre. We are grateful for your support and hope to continue to provide a space of peace and calm dedicated to promoting world peace and good health of body and mind.
