Finding Peace
Meditation and your inner health

An inspirational evening 
Thursday, November 17 7:30-9pm

at the Canadian Museum of History

Event fee: $30

Gen Kelsang Thekchen, Buddhist Monk & TeacherIn this very special event, Buddhist monk and Teacher, Gen Kelsang Thekchen will explain practical and easy to apply methods to develop a peaceful and positive mind in the midst of our busy, modern lives.

When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality, whatever problems we experience come from the mind.  If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive and peaceful mind they would not be problems for us; indeed, we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development.  Problems arise only if we respond to difficulties with a negative state of mind.  Therefore, if we want to be happy all the time and to be free from problems, we must maintain and develop a peaceful mind.
