Be the Change | 21-23 June | with Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang

The magical practice of taking and giving has the power to effect real change and transformation in our own life and the lives of others. For many years, this meditation was practised in secret and the instructions were passed down individually from teacher to student. For this reason it is sometimes called ‘the holy secret’ because we can practice it discreetly without needing to make any public display, but it has a huge impact on our mind and the way we relate to others.

However, though centuries old, this meditation is essentially a very modern practice that offers real hope in our troubled times. By engaging in it sincerely we can begin to alleviate the suffering in the world around us and start to bring real happiness and joy to others. On this weekend course, Gen-la Kunsang will teach us how to engage in this profound practice and make a real difference to the world around us.
