Radiating Light: the Magical Practice of Taking & Giving | 23 – 26 Dec | with Gen-la Kunsang

On this special Christmas course, Gen-la Kunsang will teach the magical practice of taking and giving. 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 course, Gen-la will offer inspiring and powerful advice for developing compassion, love and wisdom in our daily lives, drawn from her own experience gained over thirty years of practice.

Everyone is welcome.

No previous experience is necessary.
