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

Ordained as a monk in 1997 by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Gen Jigme has studied, practised and taught Kadampa Buddhism under Geshe Kelsang’s guidance in major Kadampa Centres throughout the UK for many years. He shows a humble, kind example as a practitioner and his clear explanations of Buddha’s teachings give us the confidence to practise them in our daily life.

    Transform Your Mind, Transform Your Life

    Are you lacking direction in life? Do you ever wonder where you fit in the world? Do you worry about your purpose?

    For many, the well-worn path of seeking lasting happiness in experiences, possessions, relationships and forth simply isn’t working. Instead of finding direction, we can find ourself emotionally dependent on these things and anxiously fearing their loss.

    If you feel you’ve tried everything, why not try the path less travelled, the spiritual path. This inner journey of meditation and spiritual insight can transform daily life into a dynamic and uplifting path to happiness.

    Start the journey on this series of meditation classes, where you’ll learn how to:

    • Develop and maintain inner peace
    • Manage sadness, anxiety and depression
    • Bring about the positive changes that lead to lasting happiness

    If we wish to lead the happy life we long for, we must learn how to transform our mind. In this series, be guided through the essential meditations of Buddhism that will give rise to a complete transformation of your mind, freeing it from negative emotions and making joy and happiness your everyday reality. Based on the book How To Transform Your Life by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the course is a wonderful opportunity to bring about positive changes in our lives that will enable us to experience deep and lasting happiness.
