Wheel of Life. Buddhist Meditation Afternoon Retreat with Gen Kelsang Chitta

2pm – 5pm |  Sat 16th Sept 2023  |  £14 | Kadampa Meditation Centre, 54 Peters Hill, Belfast BT13 1BA

Even if we contemplate the most sublime paintings and works of art we cannot gain benefits that compare with the benefits of contemplating and meditating on the famous Buddhist diagram of the Wheel of Life.During this course we will give a tour of the Wheel of Life and explain how we can use this diagram to guide us in our meditation practice and inspire us in our spiritual life. We will learn why we experience the sufferings and problems that we do, and how we can permanently break free from these.

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.

Everyone is welcome, beginners and experienced meditators alike. No special clothes are required and seating is provided in chairs and meditation cushions. There is free on street parking on the street just outside, easy access from the Westlink Divis St/ Millfield exit, and we are just 15 min walk from City Hall and the Europa Bus Centre. Complimentary hot drinks and light snacks will be available in the lounge area.
