About this event

“Emptiness is the way things really are. It is the way things exist as opposed to the way they appear.”

~Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Modern Buddhism the Path of Wisdom and Compassion

We have all heard the saying “get real’. This statement takes on great meaning when we begin to explore Buddha’s teachings on emptiness. Emptiness is freedom - the freedom to be who we wish to be. The freedom to see the people around us in the best way. Understanding emptiness gives us the wisdom to ‘live lightly’ with flexibility of mind, so we can respond to every situation in the most constructive way. Includes guided meditations, talks, Q&A and a break with refreshments. Everybody Welcome.
