More Buddhist Stories to Inspire

Online course from Drolma Centre

Saturday 5 September 2020
10.30am – 3.00pm

Following on from our very popular day course ‘Buddhist Stories to Inspire’ we have another opportunity to be inspired by more stories from the Buddhist scriptures.

Buddha’s teachings have been passed down over 2500 years, inspiring generations of people to find real peace and happiness from within. Meet some of these faithful practitioners from the pages of our precious Buddhist texts and let their true stories touch your heart and uplift your mind.

Buddhist nun and Resident Teacher Kelsang Malaya who has over 20 years experience of practising meditation will guide this course. Each session will consist of guided meditations and a practical talk with advice from Buddha’s teachings.

Everyone is welcome. Perfect for beginners and more experienced meditators.

Booking will be open until 30 minutes before the start of the course

To ensure a peaceful environment for all participants, the course sessions will be closed to new arrivals shortly after the advertised start time.

Refunds will not be given in this instance

TECHNICAL ADVICE

Please make sure you have a set-up that works to connect to live streaming video.

Our recommendations are:

Use a computer/laptop if possible. Some webinar features may not be available to you if you are using a tablet or mobile.

Close all other windows, tabs and apps that are running.

Use a good and stable internet connection, preferably wired.

It is also recommended that you reduce the amount of people streaming or gaming in your household for the duration of the class.

If using your phone, try to use wi-fi so that you don’t run out of data in your plan (video consumes a lot of data)

SPIRITUAL ADVICE

Please find a comfortable and quiet place that you consider special in your home or room.

Prepare yourself before the class begins by turning off your phone, avoiding distractions, making sure you can focus on the teaching for its duration (each session is approximately one hour).

Have a notebook to write down some of the key points of the teaching that you want to remember and integrate in your life.

Enjoy!
