“The Art of Happiness”

Loving kindness, Compassion, Wisdom, ...

We all want to be happy and free of suffering, but true happiness is hard to achieve and difficult to maintain. The Buddha taught that true happiness can be achieved through developing loving-kindness and compassion combined with the wisdom that realises the nature of reality. These qualities can also help us to deal more skilfully with the problems that arise in everyday life. During this evening we will define the meaning of these qualities, and you’ll receive tools to develop these qualities in your own mind.

“Healing the Mind”

Creating a more peaceful and relaxed mind.

If we would realise the nature of our mind in each and every moment, we would experience perfect happiness all the time. In this sense, every mind is perfect and whole. However, due to our ignorance, we are not aware of the nature of the mind. Instead, we strongly identify with the delusions that arise in the mind due to our ignorance. These delusions create ideas about reality, and often we believe that our ideas are reality itself. Due to this, in our attempt to find happiness, we move away from it, and in our attempt to be free of suffering, we create more suffering. In this talk we’ll discuss the nature of the mind, and how we can recognize this nature. The more we can see the nature of the mind, the less we need to hold onto our ideas and delusions. This will help the mind to become more peaceful and relaxed.

“Becoming Your Own Therapist” Part One

Learn real freedom, work with your mind.

We have the illusion that we are free – that we can chose what we do with our lives, what we eat, where we go, who we are with, and so forth. This is what we think, but in reality, we are not free. When we learn to know our minds, we begin to understand that in actuality we are not that free. We are controlled by our delusions.

Lama Yeshe said: “Knowing our own mind is the solution for our problems.” In these teachings you will learn about the chattering voices in your head and how to relate to them skilfully. We will discuss the nature of the mind and how the mind works. You will receive tools to develop your ability to examine your mind. When you understand your mind, control follows naturally. Self-analysis is like shining a light on our inner world; it opens the way to genuine freedom.

“The Two Truths”

Reality doesn’t exist the way it appears to us. What is conventional and ultimate truth?  

This fascinating weekend will include teachings and meditations at an introductory level.

In Buddhism we say that everything is like an illusion. What does that mean? Everything appears so real to us! During the weekend we’ll talk about the two truths: the ultimate truth and the conventional truth. We are all familiar with the conventional truth, as it is our reality. However, our reality doesn’t exist in the way it appears to us. Why can’t we, ordinary beings, perceive how things really exist? What does really exist and what doesn’t within the domain of each truth? How do we find the middle way between what exists and what doesn’t? This weekend’s teaching and meditations will be taught on an introductory level.
