Find Happiness Where You Are
Half Day Course
In Person @ Burnley KBC & Livestream
Saturday 18 September, 10am – 1pm
(available for 48 hours after on catch up)
Happiness is a state of mind, and so true happiness can only be found within our own mind. Learn to create a deep, lasting joy and contentment that comes from a positive, balanced and light mind – without needing to change your external circumstances.
What do we think we need to be happy? Where do we think our happiness lies? We tend to search for happiness outside ourselves, spending so much energy trying to arrange everything perfectly – hoping that this will make us truly happy.
Happiness and suffering only exist within the mind, and so their origins cannot be found outside the mind. In order to really achieve permanent happiness and freedom from all suffering, we must first achieve peace in our own minds.
Meditation Workshops are an ideal way to learn more about meditation and inner peace. They are designed for those who are new to meditation but also for those who would like to improve and deepen their understanding.
Refreshments are available in our World Peace Cafes during the workshop.
The cost is £15 (£5 for Monthly Members and free for FP members).
This morning workshop will be taught by Gen Kelsang Päljin, the Resident Teacher of Burnley Kadampa Buddhist Centre and of Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley. He is a Buddhist monk with over 20 years’ experience of practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism.
