Free public talk (Malmö) with Gen Daö
Meditation & the pursuit of happiness

September, Sat 2nd | 08:00 to 08:45 AM
at Malmö Yogafestival, next to T-bryggan, Ribban

Discover how meditation and mindfulness can help everyone find a deep and lasting feeling of inner peace, happiness, well-being and fulfilment in their lives.

We all want to be happy and free from problems all the time. If we check, we devote all our time and energy to this pursuit. Maybe we have worked hard and have a life that looks good on the outside, with a good job, home etc. Yet, still we can all feel something is missing, and that we haven’t yet found the lasting peace of mind, happiness and fulfilment on the inside that we all seek.

In this free public talk – at Malmö Yoga Festival – Gen Daö will explore how everyone can learn to meditate, and discover for themselves, that it is entirely possible to fulfil these wishes for inner peace & happiness. We will realise that training in meditation and mindfulness enables everyone to create a life that not only looks good on the outside, but one that feels genuinely and consistently good on the inside. We can cultivate a new found sense of inner peace, mental freedom and happiness to bring to all areas of our life, from the “inside-out”. The talk will be in clear, easy-to-understand English and will include a deeply relaxing guided meditation.

Finding freedom from craving, attachment & addiction

September, Sat 9th |10:00 to 13:15 | with Gen Daö | at KMC CPH

Discover the inner peace and mental freedom that comes from learning how to let go of habits of craving, attachment and addiction. We all experience craving in our lives, whether its for people, food, smartphones, or unhealthy substances. If we don’t have skilful ways of dealing with this habit of craving, it can easily lead to strong attachment and addictive tendencies. In this way it can easily undermine our peace of mind, happiness and self-esteem.

In this workshop we will explore meditations and mindfulness practises for daily life that will enable us to become free of craving, attachment and addiction. We will learn how to identify craving and attachment as it arises in our minds, and learn how to let it go. We will explore how meditation enables us to connect to and develop, a deep and natural source of inner peace, happiness and well-being within our own mind. We will discover how to bring this growing sense of inner peace and happiness to all areas of our life. Through improving this experience, we will discover how we can all learn to enjoy our relationships with the people and things in our life free from craving, attachment and addiction. The workshop will include talks and guided meditations in clear, easy-to-undertsand English. This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those with more experience of meditation.

Countryside meditation retreat
– Living with love, compassion & wisdom

October, Sat 27th to Sun 29th | with Gen Daö | at Langebæk Course & Retreat Center, Petersgaard Alle 2, 4772 Langebæk

Enjoy a deeply relaxing weekend of talks & guided meditations, in the tranquil setting of Langebaek retreat centre, in the beautiful southern Zealand countryside. Everyone is welcome. This meditation retreat is suitable for beginners to meditation and those with more experience.

About the meditation retreat

Discover the power of living with real love, compassion and wisdom for improving our life and all our relationships. At this time the world needs more love, compassion & wisdom. In this retreat we will discover how we can all accomplish this. We will learn meditations and ways of relating to daily life, that have proven effective for centuries in enabling everyone to live and grow these good qualities.

We will explore meditations that enable us to access and maintain inner peace and joy, even when experiencing difficulties. Connecting to the natural peace and joy within our mind opens us up to recognising and identifying with the potential for happiness, love, compassion and other good qualities that exist within each and everyone of us. We will explore how meditation enables us to connect to, strengthen and grow this inner potential.

This retreat will be based on meditations and practises for daily life explained in the inspiring book ‘The new eight steps to happiness’ by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. This highly practical manual for personal development shows us how we can use every situation we meet in life – good or bad – to strengthen and grow our love, compassion & wisdom. In this way we will gradually find a deep and lasting inner peace, happiness and well-being within, no matter what is happening in our life. We will discover there is no more powerful and positive way to solve our own and others problems – as well as live a truly happy and fulfilling life – than to live with love, compassion & wisdom.

What is a meditation retreat?

A meditation retreat gives us the opportunity to take a break from our busy life and take some time out to gain deeper experience of meditation and its benefits. On retreat you will discover how meditation helps improve our overall levels of inner peace, happiness and well-being. This can give us great encouragement and confidence in our ability to continue to enjoy meditation and its benefits long after the retreat is over.

The retreat program

The weekend starts with an introduction session at 7.30pm on Friday, 27th October. A light supper will be served at 6pm on Friday 27th, before the retreat starts. The retreat finishes at 3.30pm on Sunday, 29th.

There will be 4 x talks and guided meditation sessions on Saturday and 3 x talks and guided meditation sessions on Sunday. In each session Gen Daö will explain clearly how to engage in the particular meditation and its benefits for our daily life. Then she will guide each meditation, enabling us to gain deep experience of each meditation and its benefits. All talks and meditations will be in clear, easy to understand English.

During the breaks you can take a peaceful walk in the beautiful surrounding countryside and quiet nearby forest. Also, you can simply relax or chat with the other people on the retreat, in what is always a warm, friendly, and relaxed atmosphere.
