Real Inner Protection: A Weekend on Love

February 8-10 with Internationally Renowned Meditation Teacher Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab

When we have a strong and loving mind, our whole experience of the world changes. Love is not something we reserve for just one person, but instead is a powerful mind of cherishing that we can learn over time to extend to everyone. In these three very special events, we’ll have a chance to experience, at different levels, the expansive mind of love and tap into an inner protection that will never let us down. Everyone welcome!

Friday Night Lecture: Letting Go of the Past 7:00 PM-8:30 PM

In this Friday Night Lecture, Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab will help us courageously look at resentment — a more subtle mind of anger over past hurts. We will learn special methods to skilfully remove this painful feeling of negativity that we carry in our heart. In this way, we can create space to fully experience mental peace and happiness, greatly improving the quality of our love in all relationships.



Saturday Day Course: Moving Our Mind to Love 10 AM-4 PM

In this special Saturday Day Course, Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab will share Buddha’s powerful, time-tested meditation techniques designed  to help us connect with and expand the natural love we all carry in our hearts, harnessing its amazing power to bring enormous benefit to ourselves and others. By improving our good heart and moving our mind to love, we can make our life joyful and truly meaningful.
