Being kind to yourself

Mondays: Sep 7,14,21,28 – 18.30 to 20.00
with Kadam Tim

In our Monday classes, we focus on the practice of meditation, and how to integrate meditation into your daily life.

Surely everyone would agree that being kind to yourself is a good thing. But what does actually it mean, and why are we so confused about it? What is the difference between being kind to yourself and indulging yourself? How can I enjoy myself without any form of guilt?

In these classes, we will explore this topic from the point of view of understanding our own mind and our pure potential. We will discover how to relate to ourself in such a way that we can truly be kind to ourself and enjoy our activities, based on self-insight and compassion for our self.

The meditation practices we teach come from an unbroken lineage of instructions that go back to the teachings of Buddha, over 2500 years ago. They are timeless instructions that are very relevant for developing and maintaining a peaceful mind in today’s world.

Teachings for these classes will be drawn from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s books “How to Transform Your Life” and “How to Solve our Human Problems”. Hard copies of both books can be purchased at the Centre. A digital version of the latter is available here available here, and a digital version the former can be download for free here.
