COURSE CONTENT


Out of confusion we misperceive the way things exist, fabricate an identity and world, and live within this hallucination as if it were the truth. We view our limitations as real and we feel stuck.

But our limitations and the world we normally perceive are not real and as solid as they seem to be. The actual nature of things is emptiness, which means things do not exist outside the mind, but are mere appearances arising from our mind. Understanding this naturally frees us from our sense of limitation and insecurity and fills us with a sense of possibility and joy.

On this half day course learn how to experience deep lasting happiness through meditation on emptiness of the self. This will help set us free from our limiting conceptions and enable us to become the person we wish to be. 


This course is for people living in the North-Mid Wales area. Please contact your local centre if you live outside this area.

ABOUT US

Kalpa Bhadra Kadampa Buddhist Centre is a centre for Modern Buddhism and meditation, located in Llandudno, North Wales. The centre was founded by meditation master Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche in 1995 in order to help everyone find reliable methods to develop inner peace and solve their problems such as anger, depression and anxiety. Kalpa Bhadra Centre offers weekly classes, daily prayers with meditation workshops, and retreats. Since Buddhist teachings and practices can be understood and applied by everyone, regardless of experience or religious background, anyone can find practical benefit at our classes, workshops, and events. The centre is part of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union, which is a network of over 1100 Buddhist centres worldwide. All centres present the teachings of Buddha according to the special presentations given by Buddhist masters Atisha and Je Tsongkhapa in Tibet known as ‘Kadam Lamrim’ or Stages of the Path to Enlightenment. A Kadampa is someone who practices Lamrim in their daily life. Whether you want to simply want to learn to meditate, want to reduce your stress and feel happier or are looking for a spiritual path, our classes are great for you.
