Dealing With Pain

April 10 | 10am -1pm

Coping with physical, mental, or emotional pain is difficult at any time in our life but is even more challenging in these times of uncertainty. Buddha taught many methods to help us deal with pain, to help us protect our mind in particular.

On this half-day course, Gen Thekchen will teach us how we can deal with painful feelings, both in our body and our mind. As well as lessening our pain, these techniques help us to view our suffering in a new light and make it part of our spiritual path.


Gen Kelsang Thekchen

Our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Thekchen, is a senior meditation teacher in the New Kadampa Tradition.

Gen Thekchen has been practising and teaching Buddhist meditation for over 25 years under the guidance of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. He is well known for his ability to present Buddha’s teachings in a simple, practical and often humorous way, making them easy to put into practice in everyday life.
