How to transform your life: Finding courage and wisdom to deal with death
The only real certainty in life is that we are all going to die. Yet in spite of this undeniable fact, many of us fear it and often avoid talking about it. Everyone at some point or other has been or will be touched by the death of a loved one, and we will all eventually have to confront our own death.
What, then, can we do about our uncomfortable feelings in relation to death? How can we constructively deal with grief? Another common question is, what happens to us after we die?
These are all very important questions, and in this next workshop we will explore them in depth. Buddha taught that through developing more of an awareness of death, we can harness our life in such a way as to bring great joy and meaning to every moment. We will learn practical meditations that will help us reach the heart of this topic with courage and wisdom. We will leave with a fresh and inspired perspective.
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!
Divided into two one-hour sessions, the workshop will be based on teachings from the renowned Buddhist Master, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, founder of the New Kadampa Tradition. It will be led by Matt Lucas, a native English-speaker based in the Kansai region, who has been practising Buddhist meditation for over fifteen years.
The meditations will draw from the book “How to Transform Your Life,” which is available for free download here: https://howtotyl.com/
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.
