Overcoming Laziness

Often when we’ve learned how to meditate and have a strong wish to practice, we still seem to have obstacles to really getting down to actually practicing. Buddha described this as a form of spiritual laziness. There are three types that prevent us from actually practicing: the laziness of procrastination, the laziness of following distractions, and the laziness of discouragement. This half-day course will look at methods to overcome these three inner obstacles and show how to develop a mind of joyful effort. Come and learn how to give your spiritual practice a boost!


Our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Thekchen, is a senior meditation teacher in the New Kadampa Tradition.  He has been a Buddhist monk and teacher for 20 years, having taught in many Centres in the UK and Canada.  He presents Buddha’s teachings in a practical and often humorous way that enables the listener to easily understand the teachings and put them into practise.
