  • How can I help?

    We all genuinely wish to benefit others.  Often we wonder “what is the best way to help others?” or  “What do I need to do to make my help effective and powerful?”
    This day course will explore the teachings on how we can effectively bring happiness to others and relieve them of their suffering and problems.  Gen Thekchen will explore how we can deepen our unconditional love and compassion to make our intention to help others pure.  He will also explain how we can develop our wisdom as to how to help others in the most effective way.
    This course will be a practical exploration into the many ways we can improve our ability to help others.

    This event will be available both online and in person.
