This special event includes 6 weekly teachings followed by a silent meditation retreatfrom March to April. All teachings and meditations will be conducted in English.

Booking starts at 9:00pm on Sunday 10 March.

Everything changes, nothing lasts. Even though we know this is true, we often resist change and struggle with uncertainty in our day-to-day life.

Buddha’s teachings of the meditations on subtle impermanence and emptiness help us to embrace the changes in our lives. We learn to simply let the dance of life unfold and, after a while, see how the very play of life’s transience reveals the secret of the ultimate stability…Emptiness.

On this course, Gen Tonglam will guide us to explore the astounding beauty and power of these meditations, inspiring us to practically integrate these liberating insights into our daily experiences, and find a new sense of freedom and happiness.

You can choose to attend Part 1 only, but to reap the most benefits, we recommend you to attend both Part 1 and Part 2.
