Online public talk: how to be happy!
Live-Streamed Public Event
Monday 1st June| 8.00pm – 9.00pm
One Hour Live-Streamed Public Talk with Teacher Chelvi Mailvaganan
Not a moment goes by when we don’t want to be happy. Yet we are seeing so much suffering unfold in our world at the moment. Loneliness, feelings of isolation, worry about the future. Mostly our response is one of either hopelessness or denial, and we can see the results of these responses in our ever increasing addictions – to drugs, alcohol, distractions and escapism etc.
What we all need is to be able to find a place of peace, a shelter from the storm. This is where the practice of meditation comes in.
Buddha’s profound analysis of the nature and inevitability of suffering enables us to respond with the exact opposite of helplessness, a powerful positive energy to actually address our unhappiness. With a spiritual perspective, solutions become available. We can eradicate the inner causes of our suffering and thereby compassionately help others to do the same.
The state of the world can energize us to seize the opportunity to develop true happiness.
Suitable for everyone.
Capacity is limited please BOOK HERE to reserve your place.
