Wednesday Evenings at KMC South Carolina
Wednesdays, 7pm – 8:15pm
February 15 – March 8
with Resident Teacher, Kelsang Tabkay
$10 or $5 students/seniors (free for Monthly Members)
Many of us suffer from lack of self-confidence and low self-esteem- completely unaware of the extraordinary potential that exists within each us. During this 4-week series of classes, Kelsang Tabkay will explain how we can start to recognize and eventually realize the potential for love, compassion and wisdom inside our hearts so that we can improve our self as a person, develop authentic confidence and benefit to others.
Each class will consist of teachings, guided meditation and advice on how we can be mindful of the advice given within the context of our busy daily lives.
Relating to Our Potential ~ February 15
This class will explore Buddha’s inspiring teachings on our human potential, how it exists amidst our present limitations and how by learning to identify our self differently we can come to reach the ultimate attainment of enlightenment.
Developing our Good Heart ~ February 22
“Everybody needs to be good natured with a good heart. Having these is the real method to solve our own inner problems of anger, ignorance, depression and so forth and also the best method to benefit others practically.” – Geshe Kelsang Gyasto
This class will explore how we can improve our present mind of loving kindness until eventually it transforms into the unconditional love of a Buddha.
Bringing out the best in others ~ March 1
“In the heart of the cruellest and most degenerate person lies the potential for limitless love, compassion and wisdom…” – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Normally we relate to others limitations, however as we gradually start to develop the spiritual confidence that comes from relating to our own potential for purity, we can change our way of relating to others and help draw their good qualities to the surface.
Re-defining Our Self ~ March 8
Normally our way of identifying our self is incorrect and this mistaken view serves as the basis of all our suffering and problems. This class will explore Buddha’s radical wisdom teachings that will re-define the way we relate to our self and the world around us.
