"The real source of happiness is inner peace."

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso


How Things Really Are

Each class includes two guided meditations and a teaching for modern life, drawn from Buddha’s wisdom.

No class Sat 8 June

By understanding and meditating on the true nature of things, emptiness, we can realise that everything is a mere appearance to the mind, like a dream. 

Thinking in this way our wisdom increases, and we live in harmony with the actual nature of things. We can live our lives lightly and joyfully.

In his wisdom teachings, Buddha reveals the true nature of reality – emptiness, which opens the door to limitless possibility.  Of all Buddha’s teachings, none are more far-reaching and transformative than his teachings on emptiness.  It is through our training in and understanding of emptiness that we can come to permanently solve all our problems and be of real benefit to others.

These classes are suitable for everyone – beginners and those more experienced.

Refresh your self.
Experience peace.
Breathe space into your mind.
