Meditation Workshop with Gen Kelsang Dornying

Why are some people naturally happy and successful, while others experience problems and obstacles? Why is it that when we get what we want, we often fail to derive satisfaction from having it? Why is contentment and good fortune elusive, while difficulties arise effortlessly? How can I change this situation? Buddha gave clear answers to all of these questions in his teaching on the law of karma. During this day course, Gen Kelsang Dornying will explain this universal law and how to live in accordance with it. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to create good fortune and eliminate problems at their root.

Meditation Workshop with Natalie Eichelmann
6 May | KMC Melbourne (CBD)
Buddhist teachings (Buddha’s teachings) on self-acceptance show us how to be our own friend, our own teacher and our own guide. However, we are sometimes our own worst enemy, causing ourself much pain and torment. It is not uncommon for people to turn on themselves, spiraling into feelings of hopelessness and self-loathing.
The truth is each and everyone of us has a limitless mind and the potential for deep happiness and self-confidence. In this course, learn to silence the inner critic, realise who you really are, and most importantly, become your own friend, teacher and guide.
Meditation Workshop with Gen Kelsang Ani
13 May | KMC Australia (Dandenong Ranges)
Companionship is one of our deepest emotional attachments. We long to have good friends, intimate relationships and to feel part of others’ lives.
However, there have been times in our life when we have felt lonely and disconnected, even when out with friends or in the arms of someone who cares for us, while at other times we have cherished some quiet time by ourself. This shows that loneliness is not the same as being alone.
In this workshop, learn to develop states of mind that make us feel close and connected to others, both when we’re with them, as well as when we’re alone. By practising these instructions, we ultimately see through the illusion of loneliness and never feel lonely again.
