About the weekend:
Our thoughts and emotions, left to themselves, can lead us and those around us on a roller coaster ride – sometimes joyful, sometimes miserable. Rather than us having emotions it can feel like emotions are having us. The heart can be understood and trained, it just takes practice.
Keith will introduce the Seven Point Mind Training – a teaching, whose origins go back a thousand years, which has been carefully examined and tested since that time. Though ancient, the ideas are still fresh and relevant to life today. The practices vary from profound and vast to ordinary and straight forward. They can be practised by anyone regardless of lifestyle or beliefs.
Buddhism is not dogmatic but grounded in everyday experience. We don't have to 'believe' anything but rather discover the truth of things for ourselves.
Keith Rowan has studied and practised Buddhist teachings for over 40 years. He has received extensive teachings from his main teachers Namgyal Rinpoche and Amnyi Trulchung Rinpoche and from several other great Tibetan teachers. "My greatest pleasure is to share, as best I can, the wonderful insights and methods that Buddhism can offer, in plain English that ordinary people of whatever inclination or belief can understand and put into practice. The teachings of the Buddha are not about strange belief systems. They are about who we are, the challenges we face and our true birthrights - happiness, love and liberation."
