About the Course:
Every so often, we need to declutter. We usually feel great satisfaction when our kitchen, office, garage or bedroom is clean and tidy. But what about our mind?
If our mind is cluttered our thoughts can become circular, repetitive, negative, unclear or stuck. We find it hard to ‘switch off’.
On this five week course we will learn meditations and teachings that help us balance our mind, think more clearly and create a sense of calm.
About the Teacher:
Kelsang Gyalpo was originally from Ireland, has been practicing and teaching for almost 20 years. He has lived, worked and taught in many Kadampa centres throughout the world and brings with him an enthusiastic, balanced and kind approach to Buddha’s teachings.

What to Expect: Each class follows a steady progression throughout the course, but can also function as a single self-contained drop-in class if you wish. A basic meditation is led at the beginning, followed by a practical teaching and then a second meditation based on that teaching, these are suitable for all levels of experience. – Everybody welcome.
