Real freedom, real happiness

Introduction to Buddhist meditation and psychology

Thursdays | 19:00 to 20:30 | with Gen Daö | KMC CPH

Everyone whether religious or non-religious, is looking for happiness all the time and wants to be free from problems, mental discomfort and pain all the time. In these weekly drop-in classes, discover how Buddhist meditation and psychology offers everyone (Buddhist and non-Buddhist), highly practical solutions to fulfill these wishes. We all have the potential to find the real inner freedom and happiness we all long for. These classes will enable us to identify, and fully actualize that potential.

Each week, we will explore the highly practical and inspiring trainings and meditations known as Lojong, or training the mind. Normally we experience a lot of stress and anxiety when we meet problems and challenges in our life. Discover how through training in Lojong we can learn to grow stronger and happier through the challenges we meet. Also we will learn how we can all become the genuinely loving, kind, wise and confident person we wish to be. The classes will be based on the book ‘The new 8 steps to happiness’ by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

The classes are taught in clear, easy-to-understand English. They are suitable for complete beginners and those with more experience of meditation. Each class is like a mini, stand-alone workshop. So, you can just drop in whenever you can, or attend the whole series. A Clip Card (see below) enables you to attend the whole series (or other classes) and save up to 25% on the class-by-class fee.
