Meditation Day Course

About the Course

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful.

If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions.

If we train in meditation, our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness. Eventually, we will be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances.

Over three sessions, Gen Kelsang Ani, Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Brisbane will explain the benefits of daily meditation and will guide you through simple meditations that you can use to form your own meditation practice.

Everybody is welcome to attend, regardless of experience. This workshop consists of practical teachings and short guided meditations that will give rise to a peaceful feeling in the mind and improve your ability to live a peaceful life.

Gen Kelsang Ani

Our Teacher

The teacher of this workshop 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

Over two sessions (each 1 1/4 hours long), we’ll learn how to reduce and eventually overcome our feelings of anxiety and worry. We’ll be inspired to incorporate meditation into our day and understand the benefits of doing this.

We sit in comfortable chairs. A delicious home-made morning tea will be served in the breaks to give you time to relax, absorb the teachings and to make new friends. Everyone is welcome.
