October, Sat 6th and Sun 7th | 10:00 to 13:15 | with Kadam Mark | KMC Copenhagen

Is it possible to heal the hurt that we carry in our minds? Can we purify our mind of our own past negative actions? Can we move out of the past and become the person we want to be? Yes, we can and in this special weekend event you will learn practical meditation tools and perspectives to do this.

You will learn tried and tested methods to purify the mind. Through guided meditations, teachings and discussion, Kadam Mark will show us how to integrate these teachings into our daily life.

The Saturday morning workshop will focus on karma and purification in general. On the Sunday morning workshop Kadam Mark will give a commentary to a specific practice Sutra of the Three Superior Heaps. Everyone is welcome to either or both days.

Healing the past, creating the future

October, Sat 27th | 10:00 to 13:15 | with Kadam Mark | KMC Copenhagen

We all want to feel in control of the destiny of our own life. Everyone wants to be free from problems & suffering and feel confident that they are creating a happy and fulfilling life. Many of our fears and anxieties come from not feeling we have this control over the destiny of our lives. In this workshop Kadam Mark will explain how understanding and living in accordance with the natural law of karma empowers anyone to change this. We will discover how we can develop and maintain the confidence and peace of mind that comes from feeling in control of the destiny of our life.
