Forgiving and Moving On

It is impossible to go through our life without feeling harmed or insulted by others. If we have minds of patience, love and compassion, however, we are able to keep a peaceful mind in these situations, without getting angry or upset. We can free our mind from resentment, which only causes us pain, and we can gain the freedom to let go and move on with our life.

At this half-day workshop Buddhist num Gen Tsalden will explain some essential Buddhist meditations for developing these strong, courageous minds – as well as the art of forgiving ourself.

TIME: 10am to 1pm

COST: $50

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.
