The Courage to Change - The Solution is in the Problem.

with Resident Teacher of KMC Australia & KMC Melbourne Gen Kelsang Rabten

Sat 9 Dec | Charles Darwin University

In this course we will cultivate courage in the face of whatever life throws our way, shedding our self-defeating thoughts and diving into a new joyful life.

We may think that to transform our life in such a radical way we need to travel far away and change all the outer aspects of our life, but in fact a few key inner changes will change everything for us: the solution is in the problem, it’s been right in front of us all along - come and discover it!

current course topic

Mindset Reset - The Power of Positive Thinking

Sometimes we need to reassess our thought patterns and check if the ways we're thinking are helping us reach our goals of happiness and contentment. How we think determines how we feel, and it's easy to get stuck in self-sabotaging ways of thinking. When we do, we need a mindset reset to let go of those old painful habits and forge new, healthy ways of relating to ourself, others and the world around us.

Each week in this course, learn a new mental habit that will uplift you, build resilience and create stillness. You’ll learn to become a happy person regardless of life’s difficulties, and an inspiring force for the people around you.

Committed Study Program

Foundation Program

Now is the perfect time to enrol on our live-streamed Foundation Study Program (FP). We will learn the art of transforming life’s difficulties and problems into the path to happiness.

Based on Universal Compassion, an inspiring and empowering book written by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso that gives us the confidence and the tools to become peaceful and happy, FP closes the gap between spiritual training and modern life. Taught by Centre Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre (KMC) Australia and Kadampa Meditation Centre (KMC) Melbourne, Kelsang Luma, this course offers the perfect opportunity to take your practice to a deeper level.

Joining FP involves studying the book and trying to attend all classes, one of which is an end-of-term exam. Each class consists of prayers, a guided meditation and a teaching. There are dedicated discussion classes. Live-stream correspondence students will have the opportunity to submit their questions to the discussion.   

The class will be live streamed every Thursday evening from 5-7.30pm Darwin time and will be available to view for one week. There is also the option to view the class in a group setting on Tuesdays at 6pm.

If you are interested in joining the online Foundation Program please email for more information.
