The significance of meditation, friendship, family in times of change

The focus of this course is on the question of what experiences, impulses and inspirations we can gain from daily Buddhist practice for our life together in relationships, family and friendships. What circumstances enable us to live a meaningful life that is useful for others, and what essential role does meditation practice play in this?

Anyone can be heroic and courageous when circumstances are favourable. But true heroes are only recognised in the face of difficulties. H.H. the XVII Karmapa 2015 in Bonn

The focus of this course is on the question of what experiences, impulses and inspirations we can gain from daily Buddhist practice for our life together in relationships, family and friendships. What circumstances enable us to live a meaningful life that is useful for others, and what essential role does meditation practice play in this?

Lama Kelzang will explain in his refreshingly humorous way how we can bring the experiences and insights from our regular practice into our lives, into relationships with our partners, family members and friends. He will show how these experiences can help us grow in times full of obstacles and in the face of difficulties.
