Meditating from the heart (In-person and Online)
Mondays: June 7,14,21,28 – 18.30 to 20.00
with Kadam Tim Larcombe & Pernille Mørup
This course is about how to change, and how to use meditation to effect authentic and lasting change in our mind.
Probably most people have some wish to change, and no doubt we have all tried to change at some time. But often the changes don’t seem to last, or they take a long time and we get discouraged.
As we will learn in this course, real change only happens when we are able to change our mind at our heart. To do this, we need to learn to meditate from the heart, by bringing our meditative contemplations to our heart and allowing them to touch our heart. The way to do this was taught by Buddha and is something anyone can learn. Through meditation experience we discover that, actually, change is not so difficult.
The benefits of learning to do this are incalculable. As our mind at our heart changes, we change. And as we change the world that appears to us changes. Thus the way to change our world is to learn to meditate from the heart.
(Please note that the class on June 28 is only available “in-person”)

Lineage of these instructions
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.
We would like to make weekly meditation classes as widely available as we can to everyone throughout Copenhagen and Denmark. We are currently exploring opportunities to launch branch classes outside of our Centre in Copenhagen. If you would like a branch class in your area, please do email us at email@example.com
