Learn to meditate
Establishing a regular meditation practice can seem overwhelming at first. Do I need any special equipment? How long should I meditate for? What’s the goal exactly? What about those apps – are they any good?
Get the answers to all these questions and more at our Learn to Meditate workshop. Buddhist nun Gen Wangmo will teach proven strategies for calming the mind, reducing stress, and finding peace wherever you are.
Gen Kelsang Wangmo has been an ordained Buddhist nun for many years. She has been studying and practising Kadampa Buddhism for nearly twenty years and is loved for her gentle and joyful approach and her sincere example.
