Awakening a Wise and Gentle Heart

“There is no need for temples or complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.” – HH The Dalai Lama

What are the key teachings of Buddhism, and how can they help us awaken our natural capacity for wisdom and compassion? 

A relaxed one-day introduction to the philosophy and psychology of Tibetan Buddhism, suitable for people of any faith or none. There will be a mixture of presentations, discussions, Q&A and simple contemplative practices, with an emphasis on practical tools and methods that can help us lead a happier and more fulfilling life.
