Peaceful mind

February, sat 24th | 10:00 to 13:15 | with Sam Barnes | KMC CPH

This half-day workshop will address the core issue of Buddhist meditation and mindfulness, finding and improving the experience of peace of mind, or inner peace. As you will discover, the simple sounding phrase, improving inner peace, is not as two dimensional as it may first appear but includes a dynamic process that leads to a journey into human nature and potential.

The guided meditations led by Sam will introduce you to a peace of mind that doesn’t depend upon external conditions. This inner peace can become a lifeline when life gets challenging and also a means to transcend limitations and fulfill our basic human wish for genuine happiness and fulfillment. By developing this inner quality through meditation and mindfulness, we will gradually improve our day-to-day happiness, begin living our best life – being true to who we are, and naturally become more beneficial to the lives of those we love.

This workshop will include two sessions of a mixture of talks and guided meditations as well as opportunities to ask questions and discuss the topic. There will be a break in the middle for tea, coffee and pastries and to meet other like-minded people. The workshop is very suitable for beginners but also those who have been meditating for a while and would like to reflect on how to deepen their practice. The language for this workshop will be in English.

Healing from the heart

March, Sat 3rd | 10.00 to 15.00 | With Gen Tubchen | KMC CPH

Discover the pure happiness that comes from opening your heart to others. Learn a powerful healing meditation that enables you to transform sickness and difficulties, known as ‘taking and giving’. Taking and giving is a powerful method to increase our spiritual strength, maintain a positive mind in the face of adversities, and develop a kind heart. In meditation we courageously take on others’ suffering by means of compassion and we give them pure happiness by means of love. This practise helps us to actualize the tremendous potential we all have for unbiased love and universal compassion.

This special practice and meditation helps to overcome our suffering and fears caused by our selfish minds, thereby healing ourself from mental and physical suffering. By destroying our self-cherishing mind we naturally become a fearless, joyful person with a vast capacity for helping others in the most beneficial ways.

About the teacher:
Gen Tubchen has been a Buddhist nun since 2003 and she is loved for her clear, powerful and practical teachings and her deep retreat experience. She regularly visits the different centres throughout the Nordic region to teach and guide retreats.


Love, Desire, Attachment

March, Sun 4th | 10.30am to 13.00 | with Gen Kelsang Tubchen | Yoga Kendra, Friisgatan 6C, Malmö

If we wish to enjoy good relationships, it is essential that we learn to distinguish between love and attachment. While love brings only good results and happiness, attachment brings only problems and suffering such as craving, jealousy, dependence and conflict.

During this workshop we will learn how to distinguish between these minds and free ourselves from attachment while cultivating a pure love for others. If we practice in this way our mind will remain peaceful, and our relationships will be enjoyable, stable and fulfilling.

The workshop will include talks and guided meditations in clear, easy-to-understand English. This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those with more experience of meditation.

Workshop fee: 250 SEK (190 DKK) | students 150 SEK (115 DKK)

Kärlek, åtrå och bundenhet

Sön 4 mars | kl. 10.30-13.00 | med Gen Kelsang Tubchen | Yoga Kendra, Friisgatan 6C, Malmö

Om vi vill njuta av bra relationer så är det grundläggande att vi lär oss att skilja mellan kärlek och bundenhet. Medan kärlek ger goda resultat och lycka, ger bundenhet oss endast problem och lidande så som begär, svartsjuka, beroende och konflikt.

Under denna workshop kommer vi att lära oss att skilja mellan dessa sinnen och frigöra oss själva från bundenhet, medan vi utvecklar en ren kärlek för andra. Om vi tränar på detta sätt kommer vårt sinne att förbli fridfullt och våra relationer kommer att vara njutbara, stabila och infriande.

Workshopen kommer att innehålla föreläsning och guidade meditationer på tydlig lättförståelig engelska. Workshopen är lämplig för nybörjade och även för personer med mer erfarenhet av meditation.

Workshopsavgift: 250 SEK (190 DKK) – Students 150 SEK (115 DKK)

Lev i nuet

Marts, Lør 17. | 10.30 to 13.15 | med Nathalie | KMC CPH

I vores travle hverdag, kan det være svært at slappe af og nyde livet. Selvom vi laver ting vi godt kan lide, er vi ikke til stedet i nuet – vi planlægger fremtiden og er bekymret for hvad der skal ske, vi er aldrig tilfredse.

På dette kursus lærer vi at mediterer på for at give slip på disse vaner. Ved at bruge meditation, udvikler vi en positivt indstilling og lærer derved at nyde livet og kan begynde at finde meningen med livet.

Workshoppen inkluderer foredrag og guidede meditationer på dansk og er til både nybegyndere og dem der har erfaring med at meditere.
