WORKSHOPS AND SPECIAL EVENTS

Confidence Now:

Developing True Courage in the Face of Instability

Saturday December 9th, 10:30am – 1:30pm

With Elizabeth Muzyka, Resident Teacher KMC Hamptons

In a world where our own life or work situations may feel terribly uncertain, not to mention the increasing sense of instability of our very planet, is it absurd to consider that we (you!) could somehow manage to develop a sold, centered, confident mind and maintain it all the time?
It is not absurd. Not at all.
Buddha’s brilliant insights and clear instructions on how to shift our perspective are the teachings that reveal to us our own power, our own inner strength. Our world needs people who are connecting with true courage. In this half-day course, Elizabeth will share with us some of the steps we can all easily take to become that strong, centered and confident person. A question to consider: If not now, when?
The sessions will include a guided meditation, an explanation, and time for discussion.
We provide chairs or cushions to sit on. No special clothing required. Everyone is welcome, no matter your level of experience in meditation.

NATIONAL and INTERNATIONAL EVENTS and FESTIVALS

Every year NKT-IKBU organizes world wide Kadampa festivals on Buddhism and meditation that explain how to apply Buddha’s teachings (Dharma) to modern living. These include International Festivals, and National Festivals. These Buddhist Festivals and Dharma Celebrations provide a precious opportunity to study and practise the special presentation of modern Buddhism taught by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the Founder of NKT.

The events vary in length from two days to two weeks, but whatever their duration they all offer a vacation with a difference – a chance to break free from the hectic routines of daily life and focus on the things that really matter. You will come away not only refreshed and relaxed but also spiritually re-energised.
