Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Center Australia & Melbourne

Sunday, October 23rd @ KMC SF

Public Talk: How to be Kind to Yourself
10 - 11:15am | Light refreshments and meet the teacher to follow

The way in which we relate to ourself affects every area of our life. Therefore, we need a positive self-view and the ability to be strong and happy regardless of life’s challenges and what others may think of us.

Buddha explained the art of self-acceptance and taught many positive thinking techniques for developing inner strength and confidence. In this talk, we will learn these techniques for enjoying stable self-esteem and happiness, and unlock our limitless potential for self-transformation.

What to expect in this class

  • Simple guided breathing meditation
  • Practical teaching on how to solve problems in daily life
  • Second guided meditation on the teaching topic
  • Brief discussion & Q&A

Highlights from the International Fall Festival: Enlightened Wisdom for Modern Living

1:30 - 3pm | Reception from 3:30 - 4:45pm (catered by Aaha Indian Cuisine)

Perhaps we may sometimes feel inadequate, overwhelmed by problems, and who could blame us! However, it is possible -- even in these modern times -- to access real enlightened wisdom and become extraordinary people living buoyant, fulfilling lives.

Gen Dornying will share some highlights from the recent Fall Festival in New York that will help us learn to live in this world with optimism and power through receiving special blessings.
