Meditation Course: Becoming Your Own Protector

Meditation Course: Becoming Your Own Protector

Learn how to create stable peace, joy and freedom in the mind.

Buddha said, “You are your own protector, You are your own enemy.”

Often we try to protect ourselves by constantly changing and improving our external situation but still we experience suffering and unhappiness.

We can find a stable inner protection from our problems and fear by developing the mental strength of spiritual refuge. Meditation is at the heart of Buddhism and protects us from our ‘delusions’ – unpeaceful, uncontrolled states of mind such as anger and ignorance by instead concentrating on peaceful, positive states of mind such as patience, love and wisdom.

Drawing inspiration from Buddha’s teachings, example and living presence in the world, and drawing encouragement from other spiritual practitioners we can learn to build our own unshakeable inner refuge and protection through our spiritual practice.

Everyone is welcome

There are 3 x 1-hour sessions of guided meditations and inspiring talks taught by the Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Nyingpo. She has a wealth of experience having been ordained as a Buddhist nun for over 25 years and taught for many years internationally.
