This live class features teachings & guided meditations from Gen Pagpa, the Resident Teacher in Preston.

‘Where To Turn To For Help’ – In Person Class



Sunday 19th September

With Gen Pagpa

Open to anyone, no experience needed.


Because things go wrong in life constantly, we all need help to solve our problems – but who can we rely on?

Where can we turn to for help when suffering strikes?

On this half-day course, Gen Pagpa will explain how if we rely upon Buddha (the spiritual teacher), Dharma (his teaching) and the Sangha (the spiritual community) we can find refuge and protection from all the sufferings of life, both now and in the future.

An optional vegetarian lunch is available after the session at 1pm.

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.
