In this meditation workshop Gen Kelsang Tsalden will explain the simple Buddhist meditation and positive thinking techniques for enjoying happiness and a peaceful mind, regardless of the difficulties that arise in our life.

TIME: 10am to 1pm

VENUE:Jim Thompson Pavilion, 12 Camerson Street, Maclean

What To Expect

There are two sessions in each workshop. They consist of an introduction, simple breathing meditation and teaching and conclude with a contemplative meditation on the teaching from that session.

Buddhist meditation involves staying alert and keeping our back straight, so we sit on chairs for the duration of the course. There’s no need to bring anything, although you may wish to bring some water and a jacket. Refreshments are provided in the break session.

Attendees come from all walks of life and there’s no need to have any meditation experience as all meditations are guided.  Everyone is welcome.
