Liberation from Sorrow

Meditation, Mindfulness and the Insights that will Transform Your Life

In this series, we will embark upon a series of meditations known as the ‘Stages of the Path’, sometimes referred to by its Tibetan name ‘Lamrim’. These ‘stages’ are all the essential insights taught by Buddha, arranged in the order in which they are to be realized. Lamrim is basically a step-by-step guide to experiencing the full joy and meaning of our human life. In this presentation, based on the Modern Buddhism arrangement in How to Understand the Mind by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, we will explore how our relationships, job, enjoyments, commute etc., can be made part of a joyful path leading us ever closer to the fulfillment of our highest potential, enlightenment itself!
