Improving Relationships

Do you ever look at someone in your life (or even just think about them!) and automatically feel annoyed?

Being with people is such a big part of our lives – our views differ, conflicts arise and we can feel that the other person is making us stressed and miserable.

This course helps us to see why we might react in this way and offers practical meditations and techniques to help us improve our difficult relationships.

Learn how Buddha’s teachings enable us to relate more positively with others and to find the freedom to have a peaceful mind regardless of what happens.

The teachings and guided meditations are given by Lisa Newman, who teaches at the weekly meditation class in Wigan. She is an excellent example of a modern day Kadampa Practioner and can guide meditations in a simple yet profound way.

Chairs and cushions are provided in the meditation room.

Timetable –

10am-11.15am – Teaching & Meditation

Finding The Sun Of Happiness

This weekend courses features teachings and guided meditations based on the recent NKT-IKBU International Fall Festival in Arizona, USA.

It is open to anyone who wishes to learn how to use the scientific methods of modern Buddhism to solve their daily life problems, enjoy lasting inner peace, and eventually attain the supreme happiness of full enlightenment.

There will be precious transmission blessings and commentary of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s latest book, ‘The Mirror of Dharma’, from Gen Pagpa, the Resident Teacher at Vajravarahi KMC in Preston and Keajra KBC in Blackpool.

Gen Pagpa has led many courses and retreats at Meditation Centres around the country over the last 20 years, and teaches in a simple yet profound manner. He will receive the transmission blessings of ‘The Mirror of Dharma’ at the upcoming Fall Festival in the USA.

You do not have to attend all of the course – feel free to come along to one or more days.

Accommodation is available if you would like to stay overnight.

“We can see and find the sun of the supreme happiness of enlightenment from The Mirror of Dharma. How fortunate we are.” – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
