As times become more complicated and difficult to navigate we may feel an increasing need to grow spiritually. Perhaps we’ve come to the conclusion that the solutions to the problems we’re facing do not lie in the usual external conditions which we’ve been trying – to exhaustion, without any results. The solutions to our human problems must lie within our own mind since what we’re dealing with are the problems of suffering and painful feelings and the goal of happiness.
This is a big step for most of us.
Then we’re faced with a confusing array of possible options as to how to begin make progress on and complete this spiritual journey.
How do we find a non-deceptive path that will take us into the fulfilment of our own potential?
To liberation from suffering?
To the bliss of enlightenment in modern times?
To the answers of why we are here and the meaning of our lives?
So many questions…
In this halfday meditation course Buddhist monk, Gen Jampel will give us some tools to assess the importance of a Spiritual Guide or if we can do it on our own (what are the drawbacks and benefits of these options) He will also help us to become skilled in knowing who we should trust when seeking spiritual advice and how we should rely upon such a person when we find them.
This could be the most important thing we ever learn.
Everybody is welcome!
Gen Jampel takes joy in helping us discover the innate potential for freedom and peace we carry in our hearts – even in difficult times. An ordained Buddhist monk, he has been practicing Kadampa Buddhism for many years and elucidates the life-changing wisdom of meditation through the lens of everyday life. Loved for his uplifting example and playful humour, he is a relatable teacher and reliable friend to the community.
