Journey to a Pure Land
Ancient Wisdom for Modern Times • May 13-17 2022
Blessing Empowerment of Amitayus, Buddha of Long life, Good Fortune and Wisdom & Teachings on the Buddhist way of loving-kindness
with Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab, NKT National Spiritual Director of Canada
"Meditation is hard! But what I love about the classes is that even long-time practitioners admit there are days when their minds cannot be stilled. There's a gentleness here that I appreciate. Just keep trying, they say. Don't beat yourself up when your mind is like a dog chasing cars. After almost two years, I can honestly say that I have improved. My mind is more peaceful, and I feel like I've become more compassionate. I'm grateful to the teachings and encouragement I receive here, and my attendance has increased with the Covid option of online classes. In short, I'm hooked".
"I truly enjoyed the class. I've meditated on my own and have followed Buddhism a bit and need to be engaged with both of them more and plan to do so moving forward. I look forward to attending further classes with Akshobya Kadampa Buddhist Centre"
