About the half-day course:

The mind that loves and cherishes others is extremely precious. Keeping such a good heart brings only happiness for ourself and all those around us.

This half-day course explores the difference between love and attachment and offers guided meditations that can be practised by anyone. With regular practice, these meditations help to develop greater peace of mind and happiness, and to improve our relationships with others through learning to love and cherish them.

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