In summary: Learn the Buddhist wisdom view of reality that will enable you to solve your problems

Details

“Reality check: Life is but a dream”

Buddha gave extensive teachings on how to deal with our human problems using various methods, but his ultimate intention was to help us solve them fully by realizing the true nature of reality. According to the Buddhist view, the true nature of reality is that life is illusory, like a dream. Through developing a correct understanding of what Buddha referred to as “emptiness,” we will be able to awaken from our dream-like suffering state and thereby free ourself permanently from all other types of problems.

Since we all wish to find lasting peace and happiness, the step-by-step meditations we will learn in this workshop are open to and effective for everyone, irrespective of whether we regard ourselves a Buddhist or not. This means that anyone who attends will be able to take away a practical toolkit for enjoying a happy, meaningful life filled with positivity. What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon!

The teachings will be based on those from the renowned Buddhist Master, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, founder of the New Kadampa Tradition. The session will be led by Matt Lucas, a native English-speaker and long-term resident of the Kansai region, who has been practising Buddhist meditation for over fifteen years.

Everyone is warmly welcomed, including non-native speakers and people of all spiritual inclinations, as well as those with no spiritual background and complete beginners.

The workshop will be held in a yoga studio near Umeda. Not only is the central location easily accessible, but it is also a perfect space conducive to meditation. Come and join us in this oasis of peace in the heart of the city!

We will be taking a break over the summer period, so be sure not to miss this last workshop until September.
