About this event

Online Meditation Class - Freedom from Painful Emotions

Sunday 31 October, 2:30 - 4pm

online and onsite

with Kadampa Buddhist nun, Gen Kelsang Kunden

“Happiness and suffering are feelings – parts of our mind – and so their main causes are not to be found outside the mind. If we really want to be truly happy and free from suffering we must improve our understanding of the mind.” Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, How to Understand the Mind

As happiness and suffering are states of mind, if we are to find the happiness we seek an understanding of our mind is essential. Through learning how our mind works, we can begin to bring our mind under control, and thereby improve the quality of our life, both now and in the future.

The course is the second in our fall series based on How to Understand the Mind, a practical guide that offers deep insights into the nature and functions of the mind. It explains how to develop and maintain a light and positive mind through recognizing and then abandoning states of mind that harm us, and replacing them with peaceful and beneficial ones.

You are also welcome to join us for this class on Wednesday evenings at 7pm.

Classes are all standalone individual classes that are presented in a series. You do not need to attend the full series to drop into a class. These classes are suitable for all backgrounds and all experiences. Everyone welcome.

Organizer Avalokiteshvara Kadampa Buddhist Centre

Organizer of Online Meditation Class - Freedom from Painful Emotions - Sun 31 October

Avalokiteshvara Kadampa Buddhist Centre (AKBC) was established in 2009 to provide people in Guelph and Southwestern Ontario with the opportunity to develop happiness and inner peace through practising Buddha’s teachings.  AKBC is a peaceful oasis in the city where anyone can learn the right methods to experience lasting happiness and well-being. AKBC serves the Southwestern Ontario communities of Guelph, Kitchener, London, Stratford, Georgetown and nearby areas.

Kadampas are those who take Buddha’s teaching as personal advice and put it into practice.  This modern presentation from the Kadampa lineage is particularly suited to people of the modern world to help solve our modern-day problems such as stress, anxiety, anger, and ill-health. 

We are located in Guelph at 143 Wyndham St N, Suite 203, where we offer a wide variety of classes, courses, retreats and workshops and Buddhist prayers year round. We also offer drop in classes on meditation and modern Buddhism at various venues in the surrounding area.

Classes are run entirely by volunteers. AKBC is a Canadian registered charity (81467 9429 RR0001).

AKBC is also a member of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU), a non-profit organization with a global network of over 1,200 Centres and groups around the world. 

Everyone is welcome!
