Letting Go of Anxiety

With Kelsang Lamchen     
Much of our usual stress and tension arises from our mind and our habitual approach to life’s difficulties and uncertainties. By training in meditation and mindfulness we can learn to let go and be free from such problems and anxieties; instead developing an inner strength of mind that is positive, adaptable and at ease with whatever is occurring.
These practical four classes will focus on how to use meditation to learn to let go and be free.
You can just attend whatever of these 4 classes you wish or the whole course.
 
Kelsang Lamchen is the resident teacher at Amitabha KMC and has been studying Kadampa Buddhism for over 18 years. She has a wealth of meditation and mindfulness experience and presents Buddha’s teachings in a clear and practical way making them easy to integrate into daily life.

Avalokiteshvara (Buddha of compassion) chanted prayers and meditations. 

New Years Eve:  11.30pm – 00.10 am New Years Day.

When the compassion of all the Buddhas appears, it appears as Buddha Avalokiteshvara.  Through relying on this compassionate Buddha and faithfully reciting his beautiful mantra we can improve our compassion and create powerful causes to become an enlightened being ourself.
 
Together we can create powerful causes for a compassionate world to appear by reciting his mantra as we bring in the new year.  This is a beautiful practice and no experience is necessary – just come along and lend your good heart for a meaningful and moving start to the new year!
 
There is no charge for this Avalokiteshvara chanted prayers puja but if you like you can bring a small food offering (normally white in colour) to Avalokiteshvara.
