Connect with Others

Wednesdays • 10:30 – 11:45 am

GP2014Fall-Connect with Others

More and more ways of communicating and connecting with others appear in our world. But, do we really feel our relationships improving? Are they any less complicated? Do we feel closer to others and do we understand each other more? Do we never feel lonely? Despite our useful modern technologies, it seems like something is still missing for successful, harmonious relationships.

In this series, we will explore ways of improving how we relate to others and how we can feel a deeper connection with everyone by developing the good qualities of our mind.

 

Aug 13 • Shine your inner light
Aug 20 • Opening up to others
Aug 27 • Authentic relationships
Sep 03 • Non-harmfulness

 

The Wednesday morning “Connect with Others” series will be taught by Taz Tagore. Taz has been a student of Kadampa Buddhism for over 5 years.

How to Understand our Mind

Wednesdays • 10:30 – 11:45 am

GP2014Fall-How to understand the mind

This fall, immerse yourself in the inner journey of your own mind. Each week, Gen Chögyan will teach on one particular aspect of our mind and help us understand its different parts and how it functions. We will thereby be able to identify and abandon the types of minds that lead to unhappiness and cultivate the ones that lead to happiness.

You can drop­-in at anytime as each class is self contained, or follow each mini­-series to deepen your understanding and practice. These classes are based on the most recent book of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso: How to Understand the Mind.

Benefits you will receive in your daily life:

1. React to challenging daily situations in a more skillful and relaxed way
2. Break powerful bad habits of mind that lead to your daily unhappiness
3. Improve your concentration in all your daily activities
4. Gain confidence in yourself and your actions
