Eight Steps to happiness

We would all like to be happier, but often the happiness and contentment we seek remains elusive for us. As Geshe Kelsang Gyatso writes in ‘The New Eight Steps to Happiness

‘We tend to look for happiness outside ourself, thinking that if we had the right house, the right car, the right job and the right friends that we like, we would be truly happy…All our life we have tried to surround ourself with people and things that make us feel comfortable, secure or stimulated, yet still we have not found pure and lasting happiness.’

‘If we have to walk across rough and thorny ground, one way of protecting our feet is to cover the whole ground with leather, but this is not very practical. We can achieve the same result in a much simpler way – By covering our feet. Similarly, if we wish to protect ourself from suffering we can either try to change external conditions to make them conform to our wishes, or we can change our mind.’

In these classes will learn how to start changing our mind in a way which will lead us to the happiness and contentment we wish for.

  • The value of working with our mind
  • Where do our problems come from?
  • Our unlimited potential
  • Experiencing kindness
