Train your Mind
~ for inner strength and confidence

7.30 - 9pm

We normally spend all our time and energy improving external conditions in our search for happiness and solution to our problems. But the actual correct method for doing this is changing our mind - changing our attitude from negative to positive.

In these 9 drop-in classes, we will learn to train our mind in special positive attitudes or internal qualities - both in meditation and busy daily life. As our mind becomes more positive and peaceful - we will begin to become the happy person we long to be.

Everyone is welcome

Come and be inspired by an uplifting talk, meditation and discussion with good company in the Kadampa Temple for World Peace.

How to Understand the Mind ~ A Practical Guide to developing & maintaining a light positive mind
In this series of classes following the extraordinary book How to Understand the Mind (Part One) by Venerable Geshe Keslang Gyatso, we will begin to develop a clear understanding of the mind. We will discover how to engage in the essence of Dharma practice, by learning how to recognise and abandon states of mind that harm us and replace them with peaceful beneficial states. This is the real purpose of being born human. Invaluable and practical advice for everyone.
