Training the Mind: A Buddhist Approach

Talks/Lectures

Everyone has their own way of dealing with life’s difficulties and stressors. For most of us, our solutions only create more problems. Buddha said that while this is common, it is not necessary. However, if we want to deal with life’s difficulties successfully we need tried and tested methods. Buddha gave teachings over 2600 years ago and people are still finding success with them. The methods are known as “training the mind” because we work to train our mind to respond to difficulties in productive ways. This series of classes, which is taught by Gen Kelsang Wangpo, the Resident Teacher at Tushita KBC, will focus on several of these techniques. You can attend classes on a drop-in basis, according to your schedule.

Stress-Free & Happy

Talks/Lectures

Happiness Is a state of mind. It is commonly assumed that this state of mind arises based on our external conditions and experiences, as a result, we spend a lot of time trying to make sure that everything around us is just right. But we can see that there are people all over the world who have good conditions and are still unhappy, then there are those who don’t seem to have any good conditions yet their lives are full of incredible happiness. A careful investigation of this truth will help us recognize that there is more to happiness than what we traditionally think. Through meditation, we can understand our mind, and experience positive states of mind, we can even gain the ability to direct our mind to these positive states through our own power. Meditation is the method by which we learn to choose happiness. Everyone is welcome to join us for these classes as we learn powerful techniques for increasing our experiences of happiness in daily life. You can attend classes on a drop-in basis, according to your schedule.

Profound Wisdom: Buddha’s First Teaching

Religious, Class/Workshop, Health & Wellness/Nutrition, Education

Nearly 2600 years ago Buddha Shakyamuni attained enlightenment. A few weeks later his first students requested teachings. Buddha’s wisdom in these first teachings was sharp and profound. He immediately got to the point, explaining the real meaning of life. Here we are now, still trying to figure out how to have a meaningful life. Fortunately, Buddha’s teachings are more accessible than ever and the presentation of his teachings are just as clear and applicable for modern people as they were for the yogis of ages past. If you are looking to increase your wisdom and have a meaningful life, this course is the perfect start. At the same time, these teachings are so practical and important that even the most sincere practitioner will appreciate. Everyone is welcome.
