with Kadampa Buddhist monk Gen Kelsang Rigpa
MONDAY NIGHT, February 13 7:30-9:00 pm
This talk is for you if you:
- Want to heal your relationships
- Struggle with codependency, neediness and insecurity
- Find yourself frequently having conflict with others
- Want your relationships to be part of your spiritual practice
- Want to have more meaningful relationships
- Suffer from loneliness and isolation
- Want to know the REAL cause of all your relationship issues
The happiness and meaning we experience in our life is mainly created by the relationships we form with others. The more heartfelt and deep our relationships, the more joy and fulfillment we tend to experience. However in modern urban life, it is not always easy to make and maintain meaningful connections with others, and those that we form often sour or fracture.
In this class series, Gen Rigpa will share practical ideas from Buddhist psychology that we can use in our life to make and keep meaningful relationships with others.
No experience necessary. Everyone is welcome.

About Classes at Kadampa Meditation Center LA
General Program (GP) classes are drop-in by nature. They are suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. The classes are designed to help those looking for Buddhist wisdom to help with stress relief and relaxation, as well as those interested in exploring the nature of the mind, and pursuing the Buddhist path.
Classes explore the basic framework of Buddhist teachings and meditation and explain how to use Buddha’s advice in our daily lives to solve our problems. All General Program classes are based on commentaries by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
A typical class consists of a guided relaxation meditation, a teaching based on the meditation topic, and final contemplative meditation. Although classes are given in a series around one specific theme, they can be taken individually, as each class topic is self-contained.
GP classes last approximately 1.5 hours. Chairs and cushions are provided by the Center. There is no physical exercise, yoga, or stretching involved.
Everyone is welcome, regardless of belief; you do not need to be Buddhist to attend.
