Kagyu Samye Dzong Dublin
Due to circumstances beyond our control, this weekend with Clive has been postponed until a later date. We will update with new dates as soon as they are confirmed. We apologise for any inconvenience.
“Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional”
Life is hard! On the outside we may seem very well but our inner life can be
unnecessarily unhappy. We can restore balance to our inner life if we find out who we
truly are. A range of practices will be offered to help us accept painful circumstances
with kindness and compassion, whilst challenging our habits of suffering
unnecessarily. Modern society is out of balance through everything changing so fast
and too little respect for fundamental human values. We can slow down and inwardly,
at least, find balance.
Alongside these teachings, there will be some instruction on
coordination and how it is so important for our lives. The other subject will be
impermanence and how to be flexible and adaptable rather than rigid and easily upset
by change. Based on the principles of the book ‘Restoring the Balance’ by Akong
Rinpoche, this course is suitable for all those who seek a better quality of life.
Saturday 30th September 11am – 4.30pm Sunday 1st October 11am – 4.30pm
