June 25th  Karma:  Creating a Confident Future

10.30am – 1.30pm

Regular/Concessions

Why me? That’s the question we often ask when we find ourselves immersed in problems. But do we have an actual answer to that question? Or do we just feel unlucky? Or that we’ve been dealt an unfair hand?

About this course:

Buddha’s teachings on the law of karma give us a clear and practical explanation on why things happen the way they do, and how we can begin to change our experiences for the better. Rather than just seeking happiness, we can learn to create it as a future experience and through understanding karma transform our difficulties right now.

Karma is simply a special instance of cause and effect, played out moment by moment in the minds of living beings. During this morning we will gain insight into this most important topic and put ourselves in the driver’s seat of our own life.

“By genuinely  cherishing all living beings, we will always act with loving kindness, in a friendly and considerate way, and they will return our kindness. Others will not act unpleasantly towards us, and there will be no basis for conflict or disputes. People will come to like us, and our relationships will become more stable and satisfying”.  Eight Steps to Happiness, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Saturday 9th July –  Pure Confidence

10.30am – 1.30pm

Regular/Concessions

Sometimes we lack confidence in ourselves because we compare ourselves with others who have accomplished things we may have no hope of achieving. If we look instead at our own real potential and strive to achieve it – we will never lack confidence or be disappointed in ourself!

About this course

Even though we may have many wishes, because we lack confidence we find it difficult to accomplish many of them. To fulfil our spiritual wishes to improve ourself and benefit others, we definitely need pure confidence. On this course we will learn how we can develop the inner strength we need to overcome our limitations and accomplish our spiritual goals.
