Restoring the Balance

7:00pm 24 March 2023 - 5:30pm 26 March 2023

Cost: £0.00

Venue: Samye Ling

The last few years have been incredibly challenging. We need to find our inner peace and maintain some kind of equilibrium. Then we will be better capable of dealing whatever life brings to us.

There will also be some teachings from the book, “Restoring the balance” a book from Akong Tulku Rinpoche that Clive helped to edit. The advantage here is that the book will be a resource that we can use at home to help us integrate the teachings into our everyday life. We can restore balance to our inner life if we find out who we truly are, discovering the buddha within.

There will also be a range of practices to help us accept painful circumstances with kindness and compassion, whilst challenging our habits of suffering unnecessarily.

Alongside these teachings, there will be some instruction on coordination and how it is so important for our lives.

The other subject will be impermanence and how to be flexible and adapted rather than rigid and easily upset by change.

This course is suitable for all those who seek a better quality of life.

There is no fee for this course although donations are welcome. Your offering will help with the Monastery's considerable running costs.  Donations may be made in the Reception Office.
