About the Public Talk

Thursday June 22 | 7:00-8:30pm

Join us at KMC Winnipeg as International Teacher and Buddhist nun Kelsang Rigden explains how each of us can enjoy a more peaceful and stress-free life through the ancient art of meditation and positive thinking.

• Understand the power of your mind to create your experience
• Learn simple meditations to increase your peace
• Use the timeless wisdom of Buddhism to transform your life
• Learn about the relationship between meditation & your happiness
• Learn how to apply positive thinking to your own life right now

Everybody is welcome to join this special event. This will be an excellent introduction for those who are brand new to meditation as well as long time meditators and will give you a deep insight into how a few simple changes to our thinking will profoundly and positively impact the way we live our life.

The Public Talk will be followed up by a 4 week series at our weekly meditation classes.

The Art of Positive Thinking
Tuesdays | June 27-July 18
Thursdays | June 29-July 20

In this series Kelsang Rigden will explore the three principal negative habits of mind (delusions) – attachment, anger & confusion/ignorance – which are the root source of all our unhappiness and inner problems. We will learn how we can gradually reduce their power and let them go. We will also learn how to cultivate positive, peaceful habits of mind – patience, non-attachment and wisdom. We will discover how developing and maintaining these three peaceful and positive minds is both an antidote to delusions, and a source of deep peace of mind, inner resilience and happiness. Through this training in improving our mindfulness, we will discover how we can all gradually increase our inner peace, happiness and well being day-by-day.
