Using Buddha’s Wisdom to Overcome Our Limitations

Half Day Meditation Course with Chelvi 

Are you exactly the person that you wish to be, or do you feel that something is holding you back?

While we would like to be free, many of us feel bound in some way – perhaps by our past, or perhaps by our own negative tendencies (such as anxiety or depression).

In this half-day course we will investigate Buddhist teachings on our limitless potential and on impermanence. We will build the foundation for a meditation practice through which we can train in letting go of both the past and of our limited view of ourselves.

The Teacher

This half day course will be led by Kadampa Buddhist Teacher, Chelvi Mailvaganan.

Chelvi has been a Kadampa Buddhist for 20 years. She is a mother and social worker, specialising in end of life care. Meditation has helped transform and heal many aspects of Chelvi’s life. She teaches from her own experience and wealth of knowledge, emphasising how to apply Buddhist methods to everyday life with insight and clarity.
