SATURDAY 2nd DEC. 10am-1.15pm
VENUE: Observatory Community Hall, Rawson St
In situations of conflict, we tend to become angry easily. We even think anger will help us ‘win’ our battles, and we rely on it as if it were our trusted friend. The mind of anger, however, leaves a trail of broken relationships, lost opportunities, and painful feelings in its wake.
In this course, we will learn skillful techniques to remain balanced, flexible and peaceful in the midst of difficult situations and conflicts, thereby overcoming our real enemy, the painful mind of anger itself. Please join us for a 1/2 day of learning about the cool, spacious mind of patience, the direct opponent to the mind of anger. The course will consist of three guided meditations and two teachings, with refreshments served half way through.
The course teacher is Buddhist monk and Resident Teacher of Tushita Centre, Gen Kelsang Pagpa. He was appointed as the National Spiritual Director for the New Kadampa Tradition in South Africa in 2015. Gen Pagpa gives meditation classes, half-day courses, day and away retreats throughout the year. He was ordained in 1996 by his Spiritual Guide Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
Gen Pagpa is well known for teaching in a light and practical way and shows us how to solve our problems and find true happiness. He has taught extensively in the UK and Malaysia and moved to Cape Town in 2007.
