Much of the stress we normally experience comes from our mind and many of the problems we experience, including ill health, are caused or aggravated by this stress. On this course learn simple meditations to reduce this stress and let go of worry.

The half-day ofers an introduction to meditation in general as well as explaining simple meditations that can be practiced by anyone. By training in meditation we can learn how to establish a foundation of peace within our mind, difficult situations will become easier to deal with, we will naturally feel warmer and well disposed towards other people and many of our usual problems will fall away.

The teacher for the course is English Buddhist nun Gen Kelsang Gakyi, resident teacher at KMC Nottingham. She has been studying and practicing Kadampa Buddhism for many years and presents Buddha’s teachings with warmth and clarity in a way that everyone can understand and is easy to put into practise in our busy daily lives.

The course is the first of three in our ‘Living Meditations’ series. CD’s from the series are available in our shop and also available from  as digital downloads.
