There are many things in life that are unavoidable and we experience much pain and suffering.All of us experience the pains of ageing and sickness, misfortunes that negatively affect our body and mind.Buddhist teachings taught many methods to help us deal with mental and physical pain and to help us protect our mind in particular.
On this half-day retreat Gen Chitta will teach us how we can deal with pain, both in our body and our mind. As well as lessening our pain, these techniques help us to view our suffering in a new light and make it part of our spiritual path.
Gen Kelsang Chitta, having studied Buddhism since 2002 and ordained as a Buddhist nun in 2009, shares the meditation techniques and practices she herself has found so transformative, in a down to earth, humorous and accessible way.With over a decade of teaching experience and the benefit of continuous study and teacher training you are in safe hands to help you begin, reinvigorate or continue your meditation journey.
A dedicated student of Buddhist master Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, Gen Chitta holds the blessed lineage of Atisha and Je Tsongkhapa and can bring the inspiration and practices of this lineage into our busy, modern and often challenging lives and minds.
