Half Day Meditation Course with Chelvi Mailvaganan

~ Learning to live lightly with purpose ~

Our precious human life is taking place right now, this very moment. It is not taking place in our past and it is not taking place in our perceived future. And yet, the past and the future is where we spend so much of our mental time. This is not a strategy for happiness, only for distraction.

The time to experience and create the life you truly wish yours to be is right now, in this very moment. Be. Here. Now.

In this course, through bringing together aspects of Buddha’s teachings on karma, impermanence, and the transformative power of our own mind, Chelvi will guide us into a deep appreciation of how every moment of our life is a true marvel, providing us with the joyful opportunity to create the causes for the fulfilment of both our temporary and our deepest wishes.

The Teacher

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

Chelvi has been a Kadampa Buddhist for 22 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.
