URBAN Retreat | Change your Habits | Introduction

January 3 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Feel like you’re going in reverse? Or at least the important things in your life are showing the opposite of progress, or are a little stagnant?

 

What would be a really helpful experience, is to reverse the habits that create all our problems!

 

There is a special presentation of Buddhas teachings which we can use to systematically change our habits and perhaps more importantly the way we view things. As we view ourself, others and our world in more insightful ways we start to develop new habits. And these give rise to a meaningful life!

 

The name of this special presentation is Lamrim, or the stages of the path to enlightenment. In this early January retreat Buddhist monk, Gen Jampel will guide us in these meditations leading to a new and joyful way of viewing life.

 

There couldn’t be a better way to get the year going!

 

Everybody’s welcome!

 

 

About the Teacher

 

As the Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Centre Durban, 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.
