‘The Healing Power of Meditation’, In Person Class


Saturday 4th September & Sunday 5th September

With Gen Pagpa

Open to anyone, no experience needed.


If we check carefully we will see that all our sufferings and problems come from our mind – in particular, our negative minds such as anger, attachment, depression and worry.

Meditation is mental medicine that can cure these inner problems.

On this weekend course, Gen Pagpa will explain simple daily meditation practices that will help us to live a happier and more fulfilled life with less problems.


You are welcome to attend both days or just one.

£5 off if you book for both days.

Lunch is provided on both days.

Gen Pagpa

Resident Teacher

An English Buddhist Monk with over 20 years experience. His teachings are pratical and profund, and he has led many retreats at other Buddhist Centres around the country. Please enjoy this short video teaching.

By training in meditation, we create an inner space and clarity that enable us to control our mind regardless of the external circumstances.

Gradually we develop mental equilibrium, a balanced mind that is happy all the time, rather than an unbalanced mind that oscillates between the extremes of excitement and despondency.

If we train in meditation systematically, eventually we shall be able to eradicate from our mind the delusions that are the causes of all our problems and suffering.

In this way, we shall come to experience permanent inner peace.
