What we're about

Meet like-minded people interested in meditation near you! Learn how to meditate or deepen your current meditation practice. A trademark of the meditations we emphasize is the ease in with which they can be used both “on the cushion” and in our daily lives.

Each meeting will include practical meditations, and a talk on how to reduce stress and other problems encountered in daily life and techniques on how to increase mental and physical well-being. There will also be plenty of time to discuss the ideas presented.

Although the meditations and talks are based on Kadampa Buddhist philosophy, you don't need to be a Buddhist to enjoy this group. Kadampa Buddhism stresses a spiritual path of individual transformation through looking within ourselves for the inner peace and happiness we seek. Everyone is welcome!

This group is organized by Avalokiteshvara Kadampa Buddhist Centre, located in Guelph, ON. For more information visit http://akbc.ca

Breaking Bad Habits

London Public Library, Landon Branch

CA$25.00

Nobody wants to hurt the people they love, yet it’s often easy to do. Nobody wants to engage in compulsive behaviour that threatens their health and self esteem, yet we can find ourself doing this on a daily basis. Why? Bad habits make us unhappy, unhealthy and destroy our relationships and sense of self worth. On this meditation day course, Kelsang Kunden will explain the negative mental patterns that keep us compulsively engaging in negative behaviours that harm ourself and others. By understanding our mind in this way we can finally bring it under control and find mental peace, freedom, integrity and confidence. We can break our bad habits forever. Everyone is welcome.
