Weekly Meditation Classes in Brisbane

We group our teachings into topics over a few weeks. Our current topic is: The Science of Happiness

Have you ever wondered how your mind works? Do you understand the mechanisms of the mind that create happiness and those that create suffering?

All of us want to be happy and to avoid suffering, but we don’t know how to do this in a reliable way.

Through exploring the inner science of the mind and becoming deeply familiar with the mental mechanics of happiness and suffering as described in Buddha’s teachings, you’ll discover how it’s possible for wisdom and joy to be your daily experience.

In this series of classes, we’ll explore highly practical inner scientific methods for developing a light, positive mind. We’ll begin to understand the mechanisms of our mind and how to work with them to protect ourselves from mental disturbance and experience the reliable, lasting happiness we long for.

Everybody’s welcome to attend this course, which will be based on the book How to Understand the Mind. During the course you’ll learn:

  • where your thoughts and feelings come from;
  • the mechanics of how your mind is creating your reality;
  • how to take control of your mind and what it’s creating;
  • scientific methods to experience completely reliable happiness.

Whilst it’s helpful to attend every class in a topic, each class is stand alone so you can come any week. You’ll learn a helpful meditation each week that you can practice at home.  Drop in any week.

Freedom from Attachment and Craving

Following on from Gen Rabten’s public talk, over 3 weeks we will have more time to explore his main points and practice the meditations that will ease and eventually eliminate our attachment and stop us from craving things that are not true sources of happiness.

Starts week commencing 13 May at all locations

Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully

Based on Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book of the same title, this set of classes aims to provide Inspiring guidelines for helping us to live a happy and meaningful life, come to terms with our own death in a positive way and help others who are dying.

Starts week commencing Monday 3 June at all locations

Gen Kelsang Ani

Our Teacher

The teacher of the weekly Strathpine meditation class is Gen Kelsang Ani.  Gen Ani is Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Brisbane and teaches all the main classes and courses at the Centre. Gen Ani has been studying and practising Modern Kadampa Buddhism with Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche for over 20 years. She teaches with warmth and compassion, making modern Buddhism accessible and applicable to all.

What to Expect

Each class is stand alone which means you don’t have to commit to a full course, each week we’ll learn an essential tool of meditation and how to integrate that meditation into your daily life. We’ll be inspired to make the most of the moments for meditation you create.

We sit in comfortable chairs or a cushion on the floor if you prefer. We enjoy refreshments and a chat in the lounge after class.  Everyone is welcome.
